Brangelina wine on M&S shelves... but not in Ireland

Irish shoppers hoping to quaff some of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s wine from their French vineyard will be disappointed as limited availability means it will only be sold in British branches of M&S for now.

Brangelina wine on M&S shelves... but not in Ireland

Marks and Spencer is stocking a limited supply of the 2014 Miraval Rosé and has urged those seeking a taste of Hollywood via a Provence vineyard to “get in quick”.

The £18-a-bottle (€25) wine is produced at the couple’s Chateau Miraval estate, where they married in August last year, in conjunction with the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel.

Wine Spectator ranked the first vintage at number 84 in its list of the top 100 wines of 2013, making it the only rosé to be included, while Decanter magazine described it as having “a sense of power alongside the elegance... with a delicious mouth-watering finish”.

The wine has sold previously in Britain through specialist wine merchants but M&S is the first to offer it up on the high street, describing it as an “intriguing pale pink rosé with strawberry, white pear and floral aromas” with summer berry, wild herb and tangy tangerine flavours balanced by a refreshing acidity.

M&S drinks buyer Emma Dawson said: “We’re excited to be launching what could well be the most famous rose in the world.”
