Cottages & Gardens wine columnist Sheri DeBorchgrave starts out her article by noting “all rosés are not equal, some are more flavorful, refreshing and stunning than others.” She adds that wines from Provence are the gold standard and that Château Minuty is an iconic estate in the region.
It is little surprise then that Minuty Prestige 2019 made her list of top recommendations. Continuing, she explains that “this pale pink rosé, combines hand-harvest estate grapes grown in Saint-Tropez and in the hills of Vidauban in Provence-Cote d’Azur region. Made from the classic Provence blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Tibouren and Syrah, the delicate wine has scents of white flowers and melon and flavors of citrus and red fruits.”

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.
