Château Minuty is the global leader of Côtes de Provence rosé. The Château Minuty estate was established in the 19th century and is managed today by the founder’s grandsons, Jean-Etienne and François Matton. Minuty is the last regional estate to 100% hand harvest their grapes in order to ensure perfect quality. Minuty produces its great rosés in local wine character mainly from Grenache and Tibouren varieties. All wines including Rose et Or and M de Minuty Rosé use sustainable farming practices free of chemicals. Château Minuty is the finest wine producer in Provence with over 80 years commitment to quality in the vineyard and the cellar.
An exceptional cuvée characterized by the small quantities produced. Cultivated from a clonal selection of 25 year-old Grenache vines and influenced by Château Minuty’s proximity to the sea, these wines are the quintessence of Provence.
281 –the Pantone reference number for the royal blue color, which elegantly cascades down the bottle.
Colour: Pale pink with crystal reflections.
Nose : Very intense with a beautiful complexity. Fineness of white fruit aromas (peach, melon...) highlighted by iodine notes.
Mouth : Great depth with a mineral structure
For two consecutive years we have been facing an exceptional drought in summer as well as winter. This shortage of water accumulated over two years’ time has had two effects on the vintage:
- A drop-in yield; down on average by 20% for the Côtes de Provence classification.
- A concentration of the grapes favorable to aromatic intensity and balance of the wines.
Furthermore, we can count on the excellent quality of this new vintage. The drought has in fact concentrated the grape berries and we have produced Rosés with powerful aromas and remarkable balance. By carefully monitoring the ripening progress, alcohol levels have been kept relatively low and therefore won’t exceed thirteen percent.
