Power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may have conquered Hollywood and done more humanitarian work than most humans but now they've got new jobs as wine makers. Today they released their Rose wine for public consumption, but is it any good? We caught up with Thierry Desseauve - the first wine critic in the world who's had a chance to put the pink wine to the test to see if it hits the spot. SOUNDBITE: Wine critic of Bettane+Desseauve, Thierry Desseauve saying "This one was very fresh, very fruity, very exuberant on the aroma side, but also round, supple and fresh and energetic so for my standard of tasting wine, it was a very good wine. I gave it a 91 point out of a one hundred scale." The wine is produced from their 60 million home, Chateau Miraval, in the wine producing area of Provence in the South of France. SOUNDBITE: Wine critic of Bettane+Desseauve, Thierry Desseauve saying "It was also a good vineyard for years and maybe for more than one century so it was possible to do a good wine, to do a better wine than before because the owners before weren't very focussed on wine producing." So the good news is it's great wine, the bad news is you can't get it. Yes, all 6000 bottles sold out in 5 hours making the millionaire couple 90,000 Euros richer.
