Brad Pitt unveils FLEUR DE MIRAVAL Rosé Champagne after 5 years of production Brad Pitt has been committed to creating this champagne house, which is not some new “celebrity wine,” but an authentic project combining wine growers’ expertise, skills and passion.

Fleur de Miraval is the culmination of five years of work, research and tasting, done in the utmost secrecy. It is the result from collaboration between Brad Pitt and the Péters family from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, the producer of the renowned Pierre Peters Champagnes. The FLEUR DE MIRAVAL Exclusivement Rosé is a blend of 75 percent Chardonnay and 25 percent Pinot Noir, then aged in the dark cellars in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger for three years before being released.

The super star rose champagne is inspired by the legend of Provence-born Countess Fleur de Miraval who only drank rosé champagne in honor of her southern French roots. She particularly liked the grilled hazelnut aromas that develop as prestigious Chardonnay wines age, and the vibrant, fragrant fruitiness of the Pinot Noir wines obtained by using the saignée method and blended while still young to preserve their freshness.
