Château Minuty Rosé Blend Côtes de Provence 2008

Member Review by WineGuy2:

This is by far the best Rose' on the planet. The official wine of the Cannes film festival and the #1 selling premium of the NY "Hamptons" again year after year. The newly released 09v is FANTASTIC!! And wait...the release of the ultra premium Chateau Minuty Rose et Or Rose' will be available July 2010 in NY. See more about minuty at www.chateauminuty.com. Killer good!

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

Available on the best French tables, this ros� is one of the finest wines of the Cotes de Provence appellation. With its magnificent location in the center of the Saint-Tropez peninsula, the Minuty Ch�teau was acquired by the Matton-Farnet family in 1936. This vineyard gained �Cru Class� status in 1955 and has remained one of Provence's flagship estates ever since. Its 65 hectares are traditionally cultivated (no herbicides, no pesticides) to allow the full expression of traditional Provence varieties in the terroir of this exceptionally sunny region. This cuvee consists of 50% Grenache, 25% Tibouren and 25% Cinsault. Truly the taste of summer, this light, refreshing and versatile wine pairs well with light fare, from pastas, cheeses, grilled seafood, poultry and pork as well as seasonal vegetable dishes.
