Wine Enthusiast Buying Guide: June/July 2020

May 7, 2020

The Buying Guide of Wine Enthusiast’s June/July issue features 3 terrific reviews and recommendations from Château Minuty. Prestige 2019 (91 pts), with its predominance of Grenache, is described as “both rich and crisp, a balance that makes it ready to drink.” The Rose et Or 2019 (92 pts) is a “rich and generous wine,” and praised for acidity that is “beautifully integrated into the fruits and rounded texture, making this a great food wine.”

Additionally, the new release of 281 2019 (92 pts) is also selected as a Cellar Selection and lets readers know there is some aging potential in the wine as well. In terms of the profile of the bottle, Roger Voss explains “Almost pure Grenache gives a wine packed with red-fruit flavors balanced by young, enthusiastic acidity. The fruitiness is delicious, fresh and crisp.”

    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.

    281 Rosé 2019

    Côtes de Provence

    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.

    Rose et Or Rosé 2019

    Côtes de Provence

    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: it's gentle freshness giving way to concentrated, almost gourmet flavors.  It moves from the terrace to the white table cloth like no other.

    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.
