M DE MINUTY ROSé 2012, CHâTEAU MINUTY
Photos are illustrative only.
The new vintage of M de Minuty Rosé has arrived and it's better than ever. Fresh, elegant, crisp, dry and with a beautiful, subtle strawberry flavour, this is the archetypal Provence rosé, one of the best value wines we sell and perfect at any time of year. Last year, the 2011 M de Minuty was once again our bestselling wine, and with the 2012 just as good if not better, we highly recommend buying it by the case so you always have a couple of bottles on hand.
We're proud to be the official U.K. importers of Château Minuty. For the full Minuty range, including different bottle sizes of the M de Minuty, see our Château Minuty producer page.
Please note: if you're buying this as a gift, unfortunately it won't fit inside any of our gift boxes because the bottle is unusually tall.
Château Minuty has been a famous name in Provençe since it was built in the mid-1800s, but when it was taken over by Gabriel Farnet (grandfather of the current owners) in 1936, it was soon recognised as one of the region’s benchmark properties.
Today Jean-Etienne and François run the estate, continuing the family's focus on quality by reducing yields, building a new winery, replanting their Carignan and Ugni-Blanc with Grenache Noir and Vermentino and pioneering the use of pressurage direct in the production of their rosé wines.
This involves taking the first free-run juice that is released by loading the press with the grapes. The weight of the fruit is enough to bring about a light pressing and this premium juice is run off to be fermented separately, giving a rosé wine with sumptuous texture and elegance.
The ‘M’ de Minuty Rosé (in its world famous curved bottle) is made using 70% pressurage direct, while the ‘Rosé et Or’ cuvée is made solely from this technique and is a rosé wine to rival any in the world.
Although 70% of production is given over to their rosé wines, there are also some excellent whites and a rich, silky red. These are serious, complex wines that are perfectly suited to the cuisine of the region and a permanent fixture on the most prestigious wine lists of the Côte d’Azur.
