Brad Pitt Launches Champagne House Devoted to Rosé Champagne
Two things in life we always say yes to, Champagne and Brad Pitt. Put them together? Well, we’ve got ourselves irreplaceable memories. We wish. However, while we are not able to get that, we surely can get Champagne approved by the big man. The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star is all set to pop the cork on October 15th for his new project. Stepping overall Hollywood A-list Celebrities, he is dedicating his entire wine house to Rosé Champagne. Sweet deal, isn’t it? Here’s what the plan looks like so far.
Brad Pitt is releasing Rosé Champagne from his and Jolie’s vineyard.
In the years of their marriage, Brad and Angelina Jolie bought the Chateau Miraval in Côstes de Provence. At the time, they churned some of the finest Rosés in the world. Now, Jolie seems out of the picture but their winemaker Marc Perrin is on this project. To his Rosé Champagne team, Brad Pitt has also added fourth-generation winemaking expert; Rodolphe Péters. With these names in the mix, it is unlikely that this will be just another “celebrity wine”. We could find ourselves looking at it among the top tier alcoholic drinks around. In the announcement to the Wine Spectator, explaining how they came up with the idea for Rosé Champagne, Famille Perrin says;
Each time we’ve gotten together to taste ﬁne, vintage Rosé Champagnes, we’ve come to the same conclusion: We love the aromas that these great Champagnes develop with age, especially when they lean towards Chardonnay, but we often also ﬁnd heavy aromatic notes from the red wine, which create an overall conﬂict with the harmony and nobility.
And as far as the idea to make it exclusive, Marc Perrin says the idea belongs to yours truly.
The idea to create the only Champagne house only dedicated to rosé Champagne was Brad Pitt’s idea.
The Champagne is described to be a blend of old times Chardonnay Grapes with Pinot Noir grapes. The two blends in a perfect proportion of 75/25 to create the subtle, pink, bubbly texture and color. Going for $390, with only 20,000 bottles in the first edition.
