Chateau Minuty Prestige Rose 2022, Cotes de Provence, France 750 ml

Chateau Minuty is the global leader in Cotes de Provence rose, and beyond that it can be argued is the most important estate in the history of Provence rose. The Saint-Tropez based, family owned estate has been, since its founding, one of the quality leaders for the region. Minuty Prestige has become the emblem of the Riviera lifestyle, and it is a place that has been earned through the unbelievable dedication to quality by the Minuty family. Prestige comes from two Minuty estate vineyards: the original estate vineyard in Saint-Tropez, and Chateau Verez, located in the hills of Vidauban. Both vineyards are 100% hand harvested. Winemaking: Harvest: August 2022. Variety: 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, 10% Rolle. Fermentation: Direct pressing to extract free-run juice only; low temperature fermentation. Aging: 4 months, stainless steel. Tasting note: Pale with pomelo highlights. The nose is precise and delicate with notes of flowers and melon. In the mouth, the wine is powerful and well balanced, with notes of citrus and red fruits. It is the most structured and expressive of all the Minuty wines. The whole is underlined by a pleasant minerality.
