Please the Palate included Minuty Prestige 2019 in a wine roundup ahead of the July 4th holiday weekend. The writer offers background on the family-owned Château Minuty estate, “one of the better-known producers of Provence rosé and one of the original 18 classified growth of Provence.”
Offering more details about the wine, she explains that “Prestige Rosé is 60 percent Grenache blended with 20 percent Syrah, 10 percent Tibouren, and 10 percent Cinsault. The fruit comes from two estate vineyards, one in Saint-Tropez and one an hour north in the hills of Vidauban in the Massif des Maures.”
She describes the gorgeous pale pink color of the wine as almost translucent. “Floral, citrus and strawberry aromas swirl out of the glass, and on the palate the wine is bright, light and crisp with good acidity and citrus notes carrying through to the finish.” Read her full review HERE
Côtes de 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.
Côtes de Provence
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.
