Château Minuty is a wine estate in Saint-Tropez in the Provence district of France. The château was established in 1936 by Gabriel Farnet. In 1955, the rosé, for which the estate is known, propelled it to be included in the 23 Cru Classé des Côtes de Provence. Farnet’s son, Etienne Matton, became president of the winery around that time, and sought to restrict grape yields and place emphasis on quality control. His sons Jean-Etienne and François-Matton now oversee the winery.  Though not certified organic, the wine is produced without the use of additional chemicals, pesticides and fertilizers. The estate is best known for its high quality rosés, but they also produce dry red and white wines.  Read less

Provence makes the best rosé wines in the world. They practicly invented it. At first the quality wasn't always steady but nowadays the technique they use at most wineries improved alot and Minuty is one of those wineries that makes those special Cote de Provence rosé wines. It's delicate, dry fresh with a hit of tropicalfruit.. Ideal as a drink bij the pool or on a terras on a hot summer day. Drink it very cold 7 degrees celsius is best. Great rosé, Recommended for the lady's as well as for man it is dry and complex enough witch most men appriciate but fairly light on alcohol for the lady's so you could easily drink 4 or 5 glasses without getting swept of your feet. 4/5 would be the best suiteable rating.

Der Rosé präsentiert einer wunderbare Harmonie ausKraft, Frische und Finesse, die lange bis zum Abgang anhalten. Die Cru Classé Cuvée Prestige Rosé 2009von Château Minuty ist ein Wein von vollendeter Eleganz und spiegeltauf perfekte Weise den Charakter der alten Grenache- und Tibourenrebendes Weingutes wieder.
