Brad Pitt is getting into the Champagne biz, and today brings new details of what the A-list project looks like. Pitt and Angelina Jolie, of course, have been making Château Miraval wine from their Côtes de Provence estate since the 2012 vintage and, with the co-owning Perrin family of the Rhône's Château de Beaucastel, quickly made a name as serious contenders in pink wine.

As we reported in January, the Jolie-Pitts and Perrins would be adding grower Champagne darling Rodolphe Péters, owner of the Pierre Péters maison in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, to their ensemble to create a rosé Champagne, called Champagne Fleur de Miraval. While Marc Perrin may be the more experienced wine guy in the Pitt-Perrin equation, he told Unfiltered via email that “the idea to create the only Champagne house only dedicated to rosé Champagne was Brad's idea."

“It took five years of work between the Perrin and Péters families to fine-tune the blend and the whole aging process," Perrin told us. Fleur de Miraval Exclusivement Rosé, which will be released Oct. 15, is a blend of 75 percent Chardonnay and 25 percent Pinot Noir aged in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger for three years. The idea, the team explained in a statement, is to capture the minerality and salinity of Chardonnay combined with the color and fruit aromas of Pinot. The “research and tasting [were] done in the utmost secrecy," said Péters in the statement, adding that the first run of the cuvée will be 1,600 cases. It’s another feather in the cap for the Jolie-Pitt-Perrin partnership that’s been on something of a hot streak in recent years, with new wines and even a new winery.
