a1It’s a new rose from their 1,000-acre estate, Chateau Miraval, in Correns, France. The A-list Hollywood couple began leasing the Provence property in 2008 and now own it.

The wine is part of their joint venture with the Famille Perrin, which owns Chateau Beaucastel, in the Chateauneuf-du- Pape region of the southern Rhone Valley.

“We are intimately involved and quite enthused over the wine project with our friends the Perrin family,” Pitt said yesterday through his publicist and manager, Cynthia Pett.

The rose, formerly named “Pink Floyd,” will now be known simply as Miraval. A white is planned for the end of the summer and reds next year.

The Perrin family began producing Miraval’s wines with the 2012 harvest and will handle distribution. The agreement with Pitt and Jolie provides equal sharing of the profits, according to winemaker Marc Perrin.

“If you knew Brad and Angelina, you would see they are in search of perfection in everything,” Perrin said in a telephone interview.
