Chateau Minuty has a fully automatic bottling line designed to protect the rosé wines from oxidation and to respect their aromatic qualities. Chateau Minuity (and certainly the Rose et Or and the Cuvee Prestige) belongs to the top houses such as Château Camparnaud , Ott, MIP, AIX, Miraval, Domaine Tropez that have set the trend to produce absolute quality rose that can serve as an aperitif but certainly also excellent with lobster, shellfish, white pasta dishes or a delicious salad. The quality and education are also such that the wines remain blissful after aging (2-3 years).

The wine is a blend of mainly Grenache with a small amount of Syrah. The 281 is the top model of Minuty and is a very lively rosé with concentrated flavors. It has an intense freshness, somewhat salty/mineral. It is a dry rosé without losing its fruit and that is where a top rosé can distinguish itself.

The Cuvee 281 is the absolute top model from Minuty. Here are just a handful of bottles. The vineyard 'looks' to the sea and this maritime influence makes for a vineyard where no poison is needed to keep the grapes healthy. This very elegant and complex rose wine comes from free-flow juice (so no pressing). The grapes for the 281 come from the best plots of minuty with a terroir of slate, clay and sand. The 281 is HVE (High Environmental Value) certified, and the harvest is completely manual, using only the free-range juice for the Grandcru Rose. Low temperature alcoholic fermentation, no malolactic fermentation. 12.5% VOL

In the glass, the minuty Cuvee 281 is a very light pink with crystal reflections. In the nose the wine is intense with a nice complexity with notes of white fruit (peach, melon) with slightly iodine salty notes which is clearly the influence of the sea. The wine has an impressive depth with a mineral structure. This Minuty Cuvee 281 is a completely unique rosé and is incomparable and is one of the most beautiful rosés that, even with some aging, is downright insane. Close your eyes and is it a Burgundy?
