My wife is a mom who really loves Rosé wines. So, for Mother’s Day I’ll plan to crack open a special bottle of Rosé to celebrate with her. Specifically, I’ll open a bottle of Rosé from Château Minuty, the iconic French producer of Côtes de Provence Rosé. Château Minuty makes a range of Rosé wines for every budget, from $23 for M de Minuty to $90 for the intensely delicious Château Minuty 281. The name 281 represents the eye-catching royal blue Pantone color cascading down the bottle – Pantone reference number 281.
Perhaps the best value in the Château Minuty portfolio is Minuty Prestige 2019 ($30). This luscious blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Tibouren and Syrah is sourced from “a rigorous selection of the best “Côtes de Provence” vineyards,” according to the winemakers. It’s pale in color with aromas of white flowers and citrus, along with fresh red fruit flavors and nicely balanced acidity. Minuty Prestige is a very versatile wine that would pair wonderfully with a wide range of cuisines, from sushi and grilled fish and seafood to lighter chicken, pork and veal dishes, and many Asian dishes as well. Mom will love it.
