Château Minuty 281

281 – the Pantone reference number for the royal blue color, which elegantly cascades down the bottle. An exceptional cuvée characterized by the small quantities produced. Cultivated from a clonal selection of 25 year-old Grenache vines and influenced by Château Minuty’s proximity to the sea, these wines are the quintessence of Provence.

This pale rosé with translucent reflections offers an intense and complex nose. The fineness of white fruit aromas is disclosed through iodine notes, giving it a unique character. The Palate boasts great intensity with a mineral structure.
