The new wine, from Pitt’s Fleur de Miraval Champagne house, is described as a ‘more classic and accessible version of rosé Champagne’. It is produced using a majority of Chardonnay grapes with a ‘touch’ of Pinot Noir in the blend.
The Champagne house says the base of Petite Fleur is 65% Chardonnay Grand Cru from 2019, with 30% Chardonnay Grand Cru from the producer’s Perpetual Reserve and then 5% Pinot Noir.
It’s described as having notes of peony and hawthorn on the nose with flavours of fresh lemon citrus, ruby grapefruit and mandarin.
Fleur de Miraval was founded by Pitt and ex-wife Angelina Jolie in 2020 along with two French winemaking families, the Péters and the Perrins. It is dedicated to solely producing rosé Champagnes, which Pitt has said are still ‘relatively unknown’.
He has said he wants to ‘create the defining brand of rosé Champagne’.
