Chateau Minuty Rose et Or Cotes de Provence Rose 2019

Gold Medal, Sommelier Wine Awards

Intense aromas of orange peel and jasmine are followed on the palate by flavours of pink grapefruit and white stone fruit. The finish is zesty and crisp, helping to lift the rich, textured mouthfeel.

Chateau Minuty Rose et Or Cotes de Provence Rose 2019

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. All this achieved by a family estate now in its third generation, led by two brothers overseeing all the vineyard work, winemaking and sales.


WINE
Rose et Or encapsulates the Chateau Minuty Saint-Tropez estate. It speaks of the seaside with its freshness and flavors, and represents the ultimate in what a quality Côtes de Provence rosé can achieve: its gentle freshness giving way to concentrated, almost gourmet flavors. It moves from the terrace to the white table cloth like no other.


VINEYARD
Rose et Or comes exclusively from the original estate vineyard, a half mile from the ocean and the Gulf of SaintTropez. The quality of this location has always been evident, as the estate was one of the original 18 classified growths in Provence. The vineyard is 100% hand harvested. Farming: HVE (Sustainable) Certification

VINTAGE
2019 was an excellent vintage. The late warm weather resulted in an early and relatively quick harvest, and the estate focus on viticulture and winemaking to emphasize freshness plays beautifully with the intense fruit.

“An expansive, highly perfumed bouquet evokes strawberry, nectarine, grapefruit zest, anise and
succulent flowers. Vibrant and precise on the palate, offering intense citrus pith, red berry and
honeysuckle flavors that pick up a minerally nuance with air. The floral and mineral notes repeat
emphatically on a strikingly persistent finish that shows fine delineation and nervy cut.” -J.R. 6/2020
