Miraval

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have just launched their first wine, a lovely, pink petal, bone-dry rose from Provence called Miraval Rosé. The wine is being released in the LCBO Saturday.

The couple owns the winery and estate Château Miraval, even though you’ll find no reference to them on the label. This wine doesn’t need to ride on the back of their celebrity: it stands alone as a terrific, refreshing rose with aromas of small field Miraval 2strawberries, orange zest and light spices.

Should I add though that there’s a hint of drama on the nose, with a surprise twist finish? Sure to be a box office hit at your liquor store. Pair with planked salmon, pate, roast chicken, and of course, movie night. May I suggest Mr. and Mrs. Smith?
