2022 Chateau Minuty Rose et Or
Rose et Or is the top rosé version of Chateau Minuty. The Rose et Or is made from the best grapes with a very small production. The wine is grown and produced completely organically, so no use of artificial fertilizers, pesticides or other chemicals. The Minuty Rose et Or uses their groundbreaking method in which 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 the Rose et Or and the Cuvee Prestige (a mix of this juice and the first pressing) and gives the rosé wine the sumptuous texture and elegance.
Chateau Minuty has a fully automatic bottling line designed to protect the rosé wines from oxidation and 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 rosé that can be excellent as an aperitif but certainly also excellent with lobster, shellfish, white pasta dishes or a delicious salad. The quality and education is also such that the wines remain blissful when aging (2-3 years).
The wine is a blend of mainly grenache with a small amount of Syrah. The Minuty Rose et Or is a very lively rosé with concentrated flavors greedy. 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 vineyard of Château Minuty is located on the slopes of the villages of Gassin and Ramatuelle, overlooking the Gulf of Saint-Tropez. The harvest is entirely by hand with an almost bizarre perfection. Only grapes of the best quality are allowed in this version and therefore the first selection is already done in the vineyards, then the grapes are checked one by one in the winery and only the very best grapes are allowed in the Rose et Or version.

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.
