Château Minuty for Mom

May 15, 2020

Utah Stories featured Château Minuty 281 2019 and Prestige 2019 in a story timed to Mother’s Day, recommending beautiful wines to gift and share. He starts off stating, “Specifically, I’ll open a bottle of Rosé from Château Minuty, the iconic French producer of Côtes de Provence Rosé. Château Minuty makes a range of Rosé wines for every budget, from $23 for M de Minuty to $90 for the intensely delicious Château Minuty 281. The name 281 represents the eye-catching royal blue Pantone color cascading down the bottle – Pantone reference number 281.”

He continues adding, “perhaps the best value in the Château Minuty portfolio is Minuty Prestige 2019 ($30),” which is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Tibouren and Syrah. “It’s pale in color with aromas of white flowers and citrus, along with fresh red fruit flavors and nicely balanced acidity. ” He shares some pairing recommendations for the wine as well.

    281 refers to the Pantone number for this royal blue color that elegantly cascades in a glaze down the side of the bottle.  It evokes the sky and the sea of Minuty's French Riviera home, in particular the deep blue that appears everywhere after the strong afternoon wind.  100% estate from a single old plot of Grenache whose clone is exclusive to Château Minuty, it is the ultimate reflection of their special seaside vineyard and Provence.

    If you notice just one wine on the beach and seaside restaurants in the south of France, it is almost certainly Minuty Prestige. This wine has become the emblem of the Riviera lifestyle, and it is place that has been earned through the unbelievable dedication to quality by the Minuty family.

    Château Minuty is the global leader in Côtes de Provence rosé, and beyond that it can be argued is the most important estate in the history of Provence rosé. The Saint-Tropez based, family owned estate has been, since its founding, one of the quality leaders for the region. Minuty then became one of the most visible producers in the second half of the 20th century, a result of quality production and commercial foresight when no one in the region could imagine the global phenomenon Provence rosé would become. And then in the last two decades, Minuty defined the vision for and led the unbelievable growth in Provence rosé around the globe.
