It's not often that sequels are better than the original, but at least with wine, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have appeared to have found a winning formula.
"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. Drink now," the editors enthusiastically declared.
"There is no need to hawk for customers with an overly seductive blush; this is all about pale, barely-there pink,' writes Jane Anson. "There is a lovely floral nose, soft fragrant roses, and from the first taste there is a delicate structure that deepens on the palate.
"But, as the French would say ‘il y a du vin’ – meaning that there is a sense of power alongside the elegance, a structure and a fresh acidity that gives the wine persistency, with a grip of minerality that gives a delicious mouthwatering finish. This marks a serious improvement on last year."
And remember, Brad and Angelina's 75-acre vineyard is all-organic - a practice that started decades ago.
"No chemicals can be used on the grapes as these can enter the plant and end up in the wine," the website states
. "Therefore, at Miraval no herbicides, pesticides or fungicides are used, only naturally occurring compounds such as sulfates and copper sulphate."
