Forbes contributor Jill Barth wrote a fantastic feature story focused solely on Château Minuty. In the depth piece offers a historical overview of the estate, which has been owned by the Farnet-Matton family for more than 80 years. As result of an interview with third generation co-owner Francois Matton, Barth learned several details about the 2019 vintage, including that “The vineyards were very healthy and the harvest was of very high quality.” He added, “The 2019 Minuty rosés are characterized by a tangy freshness and powerful aromas of peach and grapefruit.”
The conversation evolved to the grape varieties on property, including Tibouren, which is a typical, ancient Provençal grape and emblematic of the Saint-Tropez peninsula. Found mostly in rosé blends, “adding nice tasting notes of fruit and structure in the mouth with spicy notes,” according to Matton. “Tibouren typically has well-developed leaves and black, medium-sized berries that are relatively generous, making it an ideal grape for rosé vinification.”
The two also discussed Prestige 2019, as it launched nationally in the US this year with new packaging. “The bottle reflects the image of the Prestige wine, a delicate rosé with very intense aromas of citrus, exotic fruits and white flowers with remarkable freshness,” says Matton.

Prestige Rosé 2019
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.
