It’s officially spring and we think that calls for a toast! While we dream of the warmer days ahead, you can bring some Saint-Tropez sunshine straight into your home with a glass of exceptional Château Minuty Rosé. The iconic producer of Côtes de Provence Rosé offers a new year of crisp vintages to bring the taste of the French Riviera to your glass this season.
Last year marked the stateside debut of Minuty Prestige Rosé and it’s now back and ready to sip all summer long. A quintessential sip by the sea in France, the delicate and refreshing wine returns to whisk you away to the Côte d’Azur.
And of course, it wouldn’t be Rosé Season without the classic M de Minuty! This staple Rosé has been a favorite of discerning French and American oenophiles alike and the 2020 vintage is ready to delight at the pool, by the beach or on a sun-soaked rooftop this year.
If you notice just one wine on the beach and seaside restaurants in south of France, it is almost certainly Minuty Prestige. 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. The wine is beautifully pale with pomelo highlights. The nose is precise and delicate with notes of flowers and melon. In the mouth, the wine is powerful and well balanced, with notes of citrus and red fruits. It is the most structured and expressive of all the Minuty wines. The whole is underlined by a pleasant minerality.
M de Minuty is the quintessential Côtes de Provence rosé, a style that Chateau Minuty defined, and is the reason behind their success as the world’s top producer of premium rosé. Fresh, lively and perfectly balanced, fantastic quality, a glass in hand transports you to the seaside and the French riviera lifestyle, watching the sea and the sky, surrounding yourself with friends and family, and enjoying life to the fullest. This wine is light and bright in color. The nose has very intense aromas of orange peels and red currant, while the mouthfeel is smooth with a nice freshness.
