The Minuty Cuvée Prestige is one of the 2 great rosés of the domain, together with the cuvée Rose et Or. The Minuty Cuvee Prestige is made from the best grapes with a very smaller production. The wine is completely organically grown and produced, so no use of fertilizers, pesticides or other chemicals.

The vineyard of Château Minuty is located on the slopes of the villages of Gassin and Ramatuelle, overlooking the Gulf of Saint-Tropez. It owes its great fame to the style of the wines and the flawless regularity. The harvest is entirely by hand with an almost bizarre perfection. Only the best quality grapes are allowed in this version and therefore the first selection is already made in the vineyards, after which the grapes are checked piece by piece in the winery and only the very best grapes are allowed in the Cuvee Prestige.

Chateau Minuity 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 Ott, MIP, AIX, Miraval, Domaine Tropez who have set the trend to produce absolute quality rose that can meet excellently as an aperitif, but also are excellent with lobster, shellfish, white pasta dishes or a delicious salad. The quality and upbringing is also such that the wines only get better with aging (2-3 years).

The Minuty Prestige also uses their pioneering method whereby they only use the first juice that is released during the production of their rosé wines. The weight of the grapes is enough to get a first natural pressing and this first juice is fermented and used for the top model de Rose et Or and the Cuvée Prestige (a mix of this juice and the first pressing) and gives the rosé wine the sumptuous texture and elegance.

The wine is a blend of mainly Grenache supplemented with Cinsault and Syrah. In the glass it has a typical Provence light color and has light pink reflections. Fruity and fresh scent of strawberry and citrus fruits with notes of flowers. Nice mineral, lively and fruity taste. A fresh and very pleasant rosé. This is a famous classified cru from Provence that represents the essence of the wines from that region and also in a beautiful 1.5 liter magnum.
