The well known and loved Minuty Prestige rose is sourced primarily from two Minuty estate vineyards: One in Saint-Tropez influenced by the marine proximity One in Vidauban, more continental and planted to vines with an average age of 25 years.
The most structured and expressive of all the Minuty wines. This shows pleasant minerality and great freshness. A classically styled Provence summer-drinker.

At first, this wine’s pineapple-core waxiness dominates its ripe fruit. With some air, though, bitter aperitivo-herb scents lighten it, the flavors coalescing into cherry pit. It’s mouthwatering, and would garner compliments around the pool or at a high-end dinner party.

Lovely aromas of rosemary, grated nutmeg, baked lemon and green strawberry. Medium-bodied. Bright and fresh with a persistent finish. Tasty stuff. 60% grenache, 20% syrah, 10% cinsault, 10% rolle. Drink now.
