Rosé Simplified: Your Easy Shorcut to the Best Wines of Summer

June 12, 2020

Forbes contributor, Larry Olmsted, provides the easiest shortcut to the best summer wines: drink Chateau Minuty. Everyone knows that rosé is the perfect summer wine; its cool enough for the heat but versatile enough that it matches any food. Unfortunately, the rise in its popularity has made the category filled with low quality options – so Olmsted urges readers to consider a safe bet with Chateau Minuty.

He offers background on the Côtes de Provence estate, adding “Minuty stands out, and the 80-plus year old family owned winery is generally acknowledged to be among the world’s top producers, championing especially food-friendly wines that can be enjoyed all year round – not just in summertime. As a result, shopping for this label is about as fail safe and simple a way to enjoy reliably great rosé as you can imagine.”

The feature includes in depth reviews of the entire 2019 lineup, which consists of the 2019 M de Minuty, 2019 Minuty Prestige, 2019 Rosé et Or and 2019 Château Minuty 281. Find these reviews, and more on the Côtes de Provence region, HERE.

    281 refers to the Pantone number for this royal blue color that elegantly cascades in a glaze down the side of the bottle.  It evokes the sky and the sea of Minuty's French Riviera home, in particular the deep blue that appears everywhere after the strong afternoon wind.  100% estate from a single old plot of Grenache whose clone is exclusive to Château Minuty, it is the ultimate reflection of their special seaside vineyard and Provence.

    Côtes de Provence

    Château Minuty is the global leader in Côtes de Provence rosé, and beyond that it can be argued is the most important estate in the history of Provence rosé. The Saint-Tropez based, family owned estate has been, since its founding, one of the quality leaders for the region. Minuty then became one of the most visible producers in the second half of the 20th century, a result of quality production and commercial foresight when no one in the region could imagine the global phenomenon Provence rosé would become. And then in the last two decades, Minuty defined the vision for and led the unbelievable growth in Provence rosé around the globe.
