First taste: Fleur de Miraval ER2

Elizabeth Gabay MW visits Brad Pitt’s Provence wine estate to attend an exclusive tasting of the second release of the Fleur de Miraval rosé Champagne, named ER2.

When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie purchased Chateau Miraval, in the hills of northern Provence, in 2008, they purchased a working vineyard as well as a home.

Rather than continue making the same wines, they decided to take a more proactive approach and went into partnership with the Perrin family (based in the Rhône Valley and, most famously, owners of Château de Beaucastel).

Focus on rosé

By 2012 the bulk of the wine production had moved away from producing all three colours to producing one rosé, Miraval.
