Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Chateau Miraval Rosé wine is named best in the world by 'Wine Spectator'


Just when we thought Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie couldn’t win any more awards, they go ahead and prove us wrong.


The couples’ Côtes de Provence Rosé Miraval ($28) has landed on Wine Spectator magazine’s list of “Top 100 Wines of 2013,” receiving an impressive score of 90 out of 100.


As the 84th wine on the list, it’s considered to be the best rosé wine in the world.

Described as “refined and elegant, offering pure and concentrated flavors of dried red berry, tangerine and melon,” the wine was made with grapes grown on their 17th-century wine estate Château Miraval in Provence, which they purchased as a vacation home for $60 million in 2012.


The superstar couple had quietly partnered with Famille Perri, an acclaimed winemaking family from Provence dating back five generations, to help produce the prized vino under the label Jolie-Pitt & Perri.


When it was released back in March, it sold 6,000 bottles in five hours.


The superstar couple can add this to their long list of accomplishments, which include Academy Awards, Golden Globes and recognition for their many philanthropic endeavours. Just last week, Angelina accepted an honourary Oscar for her humanitarian work, with Brad and their 12-year-old son Maddox by her side.
