M. de Minuty Cotes de Provence Rose 2019
Winery: "Established in 1936, Chateau Minuty remains the Provencal Rose gold-standard, continuing a remarkable 20 years of growth as the #1 Rose throughout Europe. Once again the 20+ year-old vines, farmed without the use of pesticides or herbicides, experienced a gloriously hot, sunny growing season. Frost in late April and less than half the rainfall throughout the season, produced smaller berries which in-turn yielded less wine! Hand harvesting began mid-August and lasted 2 weeks, as the blocks were picked at perfect ripeness. The tiny berries were absolutely pristine, with an acidity held vibrant by the vineyards’ proximity to the cooling bay of St. Tropez.
This vibrant, dry Rose reveals fresh, ripe peaches and candied orange aromas that lead into a plush palate with soft acidity and featherweight richness."
Importer: "This rosé is quintessential of the local style. Pale honeysuckle pink, and offering a clean nose of citrus fruit, offset by subtle floral and candied notes. Fresh acidity makes for an incisive and lively palate, with a rounded feel. Partner with the delicate flavours of fresh shellfish, or with a mozzarella and sun-ripened tomato salad."
