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. 281 refers to the Pantone reference color which elegantly cascades down the bottle. An exceptional rose characterized by the small quantities produced.

The Prestige Rosé

We're big fans of Rosé as a year-round option, but when the air becomes crisp and leaves start to drop, we look for a more indulgent expression of our favorite Provence pour. That's when we turn to this small production bottling of Minuty 281. The crown jewel of the Minuty Rosés, its name comes from the Pantone reference color – 281 - of the striking blue color that cascades down the bottle. You know you’ve entered “prestige rosé” territory when this bottle appears at the table.  What makes this blushing beauty so special? In part, it is the 25 year old Grenache vines that grow in close proximity to the Mediterranean sea, lending a striking salinity to this wine. Vibrant and expressive, it has heady notes of honeydew melon, white peach and wisps of wild strawberries. One sip and you’ll understand why this Rosé has graced the tables of the finest restaurants and most prestigious hotels in the Cote d’Azur. Rich and round, its flavors go deep into ripe cherries, succulent peaches, blood orange zest and sea spray saltiness. Compelling and out of the ordinary, this is a Rosé to savor. We recommend pairing it with grilled lobster tails, sushi grade tuna steaks or garlic prawns.
