One week ago today, it snowed in the morning. I know they can’t all be magical days where it snowed in the morning, but I hope that your day is going at least as well as a non-snow day can go. YOU DESERVE IT. But you know who you don’t deserve “it” as much as? “It,” in this case, meaning having your wine placed in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of the Year? Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, apparently! From Us Magazine:
Watch out wine world! Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie just added another award to their growing mantel filled with Oscars, Golden Globes and SAG Awards — only this time, the honor is for wine.
The dynamic duo’s Chateau Miraval Rosé 2012 was ranked number 84 among Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of the Year, making it the “best Rosé in the world,” according to a new press release. Back in March when the wine was first released, all 6,000 bottles sold out within five hours.
Although Jolie, 38, and fiance Pitt, 49, may have helped boost sales with their celebrity, wine experts seem to agree that the Hollywood super-couple can toast to their good taste. Wine Spectator Managing Editor Kim Marcus called the rosé “Refined and elegant, offering pure and concentrated flavors of dried red berry, tangerine and melon. The focused finish features flint and spice notes, with a hint of cream.”
Huh. I don’t mean to attempt to rain on anyone’s parade, but I watched Somm on Netflix recently and the major thing I took away from it is that no one actually knows too much of what they’re talking about when they talk about wine. So. Maybe don’t get too excited about your accomplishment, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, because of a thing that I more-or-less took away from a documentary that I watched! But congratulations anyway! Good day! Nice day! HOW WAS YOUR DAY?
