1st Jolie-Pitt vintage is snapped up online

PARIS - Nine little letters on the back of the bottle set this rosé wine apart from other fruits of the Provence grape harvest: Jolie-Pitt.

The Miraval Rosé 2012 was produced at the southern French estate of Chateau Miraval - property of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

It's the first Miraval vintage stamped by the couple, in a joint venture with vintner Marc Perrin. The back label reads "bottled by Jolie-Pitt and Perrin."

The Perrin family spokesman said the first 6,000 bottles put on sale online Thursday were bought within five hours. The wine sold for $139 for a six-bottle case.
