ICONIC WINE - Château Minuty 281 is an exceptional cuvée, a true concentrate of Provence, made from a selection of Grenache clones that are an average of 25 years old and cradled by the maritime influences of the Château Minuty terroir.
This vintage came out in 2015 and is the latest Minuty rosé. Why 281? It’s a nod to the blue Pantone number used for the bottle neck. The intense blue is a celebration of the nearby Mediterranean Sea which influences and elevates the Minuty vineyard every day. 281 is also inspired by the visionary and revolutionary ambition of Etienne Matton, Jean-Etienne and François’s father. He began cloning the winery’s exclusive Grenache in the 70s which now forms the 281 vintage’s best plots. So the 281 is a rosé for celebration, haute-couture and fine dining.
A blush pink with intense and joyful aromas. The initial aroma is a delicate combination of citrus, tropical fruit and white blackcurrant which makes way for an explosion of aromas bursting with complex white fruit, vine peach, salty, spicy and white pepper notes. A scent made in heaven melts into a dreamy mouthfeel enhanced by the wine’s body and intense grip.
