A blend of Grenache, Tibouren, Cinsault and Syrah.
Pale with pomelo highlights. The Chateau Minuty Prestige Rose's 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.
Pair the Chateau Minuty Prestige Rose alongside veal carpaccio, grilled fish, stuffed vegetables, & oriental cuisine.
"The Matton-Farnet brothers, Jean-Etienne and François, have managed their family estate since the 1990s, blending this wine from estate and purchased fruit. It feels substantive from the get-go, its core of dark flavor distant at first, slowly coming into focus along its structured length. With air, stemmy savor gives complexity to the cherry notes. The wine is airy and open, though, a faint sweetness making it all the more quaffable—that expansiveness brought my mind to a pâtisserie window, electric-red macerated berries perched atop puffy layers of pastry dough." - Wine & Spirits, 94 points
"Light, vivid orange. Spice-accented redcurrant, strawberry and floral scents pick up a hint of orange zest with air. Racy and focused on the palate, offering fresh citrus fruit and red berry flavors and a spicy hint of white pepper. Finishes long and precise, with repeating spiciness and a touch of chalky minerality." - Vinous, 91 points
"An inviting nose of rose petal, green strawberry and nutmeg. Medium-bodied with a silky smooth texture. Nicely flavorful and crisp with easy balance. 50% grenache, 20% cinsault, 20% syrah, 10% tibouren. Drink now." - James Suckling, 90 points
