Château Minuty 281
Château Minuty 281 is an exceptional rosé made from a clonal selection of Grenache grapes aged an average of 25 years and influenced by the estate's maritime terroir.
This cuvée, created in 2015, is the latest Minuty rosé. Why 281? A nod to the blue Pantone number used to decorate the bottle. This intense blue pays homage to the Mediterranean Sea, whose proximity influences and optimizes the quality of Minuty's vineyards every day. 281 is also inspired by the visionary and revolutionary ambition of Etienne Matton, father of Jean-Etienne and François. Back in the 70s, he created a selection of Grenache clones exclusive to the estate, from which the best parcels reserved for Cuvée 281 are grown today. This rosé pays tribute to the family heritage and the Minuty terroir.
A parcel-by-parcel selection of the estate's three great terroirs presides over this cuvée. To the Grenache from a single clone have been added the Château's beautiful Syrah grapes to bring those spicy, peppery notes to the finish. Like the rest of the estate, the grapes are grown under HVE (Haute Valeur Environnementale) certification, with grassing adapted to the soil type and exposure. The grapes are harvested by hand, an essential yet rare requirement for preserving their absolute integrity.

The pale hue and translucent reflections of this rosé heralds a delicate wine with an intense and complex bouquet. The fineness of white fruit aromas is disclosed through iodine notes, giving it a unique character.
