Rose et Or, Château Minuty, Provence, France 2020
Regular price £35.45
Château Minuty is a family-owned wine estate located in Provence, France overlooking the Saint-Tropez peninsula. Minuty rosés are iconic of the French Riviera, and the property enjoys the Cru Classé status, one of only 23 estates to have been given this designation within the Côtes de Provence appellation.
Château Minuty is one of the last estates in the Côtes de Provence region whose harvest is entirely hand-picked, ensuring that the grapes arrive at the cellars in perfect condition, thus limiting the extraction of plant matter in the must. Recently, in an attempt to further improve quality and precision in their winemaking, the team routinely conduct all vinification on a parcel by parcel basis. This has most definitely seen an increase in complexity in the final blends, as the wines from Minuty continue to be acknowledged among the best examples in the region.
Rose et Or 2020
Intense aromas of orange peel and jasmine are followed on the palate by flavours of pink grapefruit and white stone fruit. The finish is zesty and crisp, helping to lift the rich, textured mouthfeel.
