Chateau Minuty is a classic domain from Provence. It is located on the peninsula of Saint-Tropez. Minuty owes its name to the style of the wines and the flawless regularity. The domain works according to simple principles: The vines are grown according to rational cultivation, without weed killers or pesticides. This protected, wooded environment guarantees a privileged ecosystem. The fruit is preserved during extraction to preserve the rich expression of the region.
A renowned Provence winemaker, Château Minuty has been around since 1850, but when it was taken over by Gabriel Farnet (grandfather of the current owners) in 1936, it quickly became recognized as one of Provence's benchmark winemakers. Today Jean-Etienne and François manage the estate and have taken the focus on quality even further by reducing yields, building a new winery, replanting their Carignan and Ugni-Blanc with grenache noir and Vermentino and pioneering the use of the first juice released in 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 the Rose et Or and the Cuvee (a mix of this juice and the first pressing) and gives the rosé wine the luscious texture and elegance. While 70% of the production is rosé wine, there are also some excellent whites and a rich, silky red. All Chateau Minuty wines are very serious, complex wines that are perfectly suited to Provencal cuisine and are a permanent fixture on the most prestigious wine lists of the Côte d'Azur.
