Fall into rosé with a classic from Château Minuty
With Labor Day this weekend, we’re all preparing for our last summer hurrah. But that doesn’t mean we can’t keep our rosé game strong in the coming weeks (and months!). If there’s anyone who knows how celebrate rosé season year-round — and in true style — it’s Chateau Minuty.
The family-owned Minuty estate, which sits nestled away on the St. Tropez peninsula in the South of France, has produced quintessential Provençal rosé wines for three generations. The alluring 2018 vintage of estate-grown Rose et Or (SRP $40; available nationwide) not only represents the glamour and luxurious lifestyle of the Côte d’Azur, being poured seaside at some of the storied beach club destinations on the French Riviera, the wine’s complexity, concentration of aromas and intense freshness contribute to its reputation as the “champagne” of rosé.
This year, Minuty also debuted the new 2018 vintages of M de Minuty (SRP $21), a classic Provençal pale, dry style wine loved by those in the know, and traditionally bottled in a gorgeous curvy bottle, and 281 (SRP $79), a reference to the Pantone number for the blue color of the Mediterranean Sea, which is reflected in the royal blue color cascading down the bottle.
And if that’s not enough, Minuty released the second annual edition of its M de Minuty “Worldwide Tour” bottle series, featuring artwork by English artist, designer and illustrator Ruby Taylor. The M de Minuty Limited Edition 2018 is a salmon hued rosé adorned with colorful, retro-modern artwork evocative of the St Tropez seaside lifestyle and the winery’s historic home on the namesake peninsula along the French Riviera. This stunning bottle has an SRP of $23 and is available in select markets around the country.
