More info

The grapes come from the oldest of the estate’s own coastal vineyards, which are sustainably farmed and planted on mica-schist soils with a south-western exposure. The grapes were all harvested by hand.

After gentle pneumatic pressing, the juice was left briefly on the skins to extract colour, followed by temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation and was bottled unoaked.

Château Minuty

Château Minuty was purchased in 1936 by the Matton-Farnet family and soon after, the vineyards were completely replanted with a focus on traditional, local grape varieties, painstakingly farmed to produce lower yields. By the 1960s, this quality-led approach had paid dividends as the wines of Château Minuty became a fixture on the lists of the finest restaurants of the Côte d’Azur. A négociant arm was added to the business in 1995, applying their quality-focus and production know-how to a complementary range of branded wines under the Minuty label. This foresight and dedication cemented their position as one of the most-recognised producers in the region, long before the explosion in popularity of delicate, pale rosés that has occurred in recent years.
