Cotes de Provence Rose, M de Minuty, 2015
Transport yourself to St Tropez in the South of France with M Minuty rosé which is typical of the Provence style – delicious, elegant and refreshing. Pale pink in colour: fragrant, strawberry-scented nose: dry and crisp with lovely delicate fruit.
Product of the estate.
Located on the St-Tropez peninsula overlooking the Mediterranean. This is a textbook, great value summer wine. Packed with floral notes, it is crisp, lively and fresh with lovely strawberry fruit characters, yet there is enough weight to pair with delicious summer salads. 90 points, Decanter Magazine August 2017

Château Minuty is situated in the middle of continuous vineyards overlooking the Bay of St Tropez. After Gabriel Farnet (the grandfather of the current owners) took over the estate in 1936 it became quickly known as one of the region’s benchmark properties.
Today Jean-Etienne and François run the estate, continuing the family's focus on quality by reducing yields, building a new winery and replanting with Grenache Noir and Vermentino.
They also are pioneering in the use of the ‘pressurage direct’ method in the production of their rosé wines. This method, considered the best way of making rosé wine, is the most traditional in the South of France and particularly favoured by winemakers in Provence. It gives a more refined flavour and a paler, more delicate pink hue. They should know as they take their pink wine very seriously!

Provence is a place where the sun always shines, and life rolls by at a relaxed pace. These qualities are reflected in the wines produced in Provence today, from the fun-to-drink roses that make the perfect companion to a summer holiday, whilst the young, light, and racy red and white wines available offer up a surprising range of complexity and flavours.
