Minuty Prestige – a warm weather blush

A rosé summer

There can be nothing better than a mellow summer evening. We enjoy light drinks and equally light food. Delicate salmon hues are found in both flowers and wine. The weather is warm but we hope the wine is chilled, and we would be delighted if the bottle was a blushing Minuty Prestige Cotes de Provence rosé. It’s the taste of any classy summer get-together.

Overlooking the iconic bay of St TropezMinuty

Château Minuty has been celebrated in Provence since the mid-1800s. In 1955 the Minuty estate became one of just 14 Châteaux in Provence to be given the Cru Classé designation. With over 160 hectares of owned vineyards in the heart of Provence, overlooking the iconic bay of St Tropez, Château Minuty uses sustainable farming practices; the combination of an historical know-how and contemporary technology ensures the wine’s continued reputation for quality.

Most of the production is given over to classic rosé wine for which the region is famous. Minuty Prestige is a good expression of the style of wine we have come to expect and love. It’s the perfect choice for al fresco meals of white meats in light sauces, poached fish such as salmon, and grilled vegetables. It’s also a delightful aperitif, or a palate-cleansing treat served with fresh berries at the end of a meal.
