Chateau Minuty 281
2019 Minuty Prestige: Chateau Minuty is an estate owned by the Matton-Farnet family and situated on the peninsula of Saint-Tropez. Grape varietals are planted on site-specific parcels of calcareous and limestone soils. The expressions of the wines are influenced by the abundant sunshine of this region and the breezes from the Mediterranean Sea. Minuty Prestige comes from two Minuty hand-harvested estate vineyards: the original estate vineyard in Saint-Tropez and Chauteau Verez located in the hills of Vidauban. It possesses a pinkish-coral color with an attractive scent of framboise. The core is pure red raspberry overlaid with nectarines. This rose´ is balanced and built for aging.
Chateau Minuty 281: The creation of this rose´ was inspired by the influence of sea and sky of Saint-Tropez in summer. This wine is sourced from Grenache vines that average 25 years of age with the addition of some Cinsault and Syrah. There are accents of saline and field flowers. It explodes on the palate with fresh peach blossoms and blood orange that coalesce into a juicy core. There is a hint of garrigue that will remind of the Mediterranean Sea. This charismatic rose´ has an amazing mid-palate richness and is extremely complex throughout leading to a bright, long finish.
