can you identify the wine in my profile picture?

Posted by johnspence, Aug 2, 2010.

It is a Chateau Minuty 2007, but i can't make out the rest of the label.  I would love to surprise my wife and buy some...we enjoyed this wine while in France in 2008.  Help!  Please.

It's Chateau Minuty Blanc Vin du Pays.

We show listings in France and Germany.

Where are you located?

It doesn't look like they're putting any effort into exporting to the US, either their white or their rose. Unless you're in Europe, I'm not sure that this site will be much help. If you are in the US, there are other Cotes de Provence whites you could explore in attempt to find something similar. I can think of plenty of worse exercises than doing a search and series of tastings of those refreshing whites from southern France. ;-)

One place to start would be with K&L Wines, who'll ship most anywhere. Do a search for wines from France and then from Provence. There are more reds, and certainly more roses, that'll show up than whites, but several interesting-looking whites are there, too. And why not try a rose or two, while you're at it?

I agree, that sounds like a fun adventure - to find a similar wine. However, we are a bit new to enjoying wine and usually more disappointed than pleased at our selections. Hence, we prefer to go with what we know. But I'll try to narrow down a few options by the method you described (really, we have no idea what the terminology means...we just enjoy it). Thanks!

Hey, if we all stuck with what we knew we'd only be drinking a very few wines and stuck with a narrow, infitesimal subset of a very large, enjoyable wine world! The pleasure is more than half in the search.

Don't be afraid to ask any questions here when you run across things that read like Greek to you....
