ROUGE ET OR
SIGNATURE WINE - In less than a decade, the "Or" range has become the signature of Château Minuty. The result of meticulous plot work, these vintages are distinguished by their naturalness and the immediate pleasure they give.
With this cuvée, the idea of a top-of-the-range Provençal red was born, at once a terroir wine, reflecting the schistose soils of Gassin, a racy wine, reflecting the great nobility of the Mourvèdre grape, and a Minuty wine, reflecting the style where refinement, lightness and generosity are combined. An ambitious and successful triptych.
A 100% estate wine with vine growing and yields to suit each plot, specific ground cover to achieve perfectly ripe grapes every year. A single 100% Gassin terroir on the winery’s site with fantastic cystalline schist. Two grape varieties, mainly Mourvèdre with a hint of Syrah. The handpicked raisins are then destemmed and crushed. They undergo cold pre-ferment maceration to bring out the intense dark fruit aromas before being fermented with temperature checks during two fermentations. The wine is barely touched after that and ages in french oak barrels. The idea is to only extract what’s required to produce an
A garnet hue with topaz glints bursting with deep dark fruit and blackcurrant notes that move into a vanilla aftertaste. The delicate, elegant and silky mouthfeel is full of body. A delight.
A wine for dishes with character, sweet and sour Asian sauces will go well with the dark fruits of the wine. Duck in 5 courses, fried fish prepared Japanese style, Indian cuisine with tandoori chicken. In Provence, you will enjoy the leg of lamb.
