CHATEAU MINUTY PRESTIGE ROSÉ

"Belonging to the Matton-Farnet family for 80 years, Château Minuty is a family run wine estate located in southern France’s Provence region, overlooking the Saint-Tropez peninsula.

A FAMILY AFFAIR

1930 - The early years - already the owner of the Domaine de Châteauneuf in Vidauban, Gabriel Farnet acquired Château Minuty in 1936. The Estate and its small chapel were originally built under Napolean III, the latter lending its name “De l’Oratoire” to the wine that was for years the Estate’s flagship product. Many of the most prestigious hotels on the Côte d’Azur still stock this curved bottle. Gabriel Farnet began by completely replanting the Estate, bringing Château Minuty back to its former glory and splendor after the Second World War. In 1955 Château Minuty was one of 23 estates to be certified as a “Cru Classé” or “vintage class” of Côtes de Provence wines.

1960 - Minuty's continued rise on the Côte d’Azur - Monique Farnet, Gabriel’s daughter, and her husband Etienne Matton, who was President of the Cru Classé board for many years, replanted traditional and local grape varietals like Tibouren, Rolle and Grenache, keeping yields low in their quest for producing wines of the highest quality. Thanks to the painstaking work carried out in the vineyards, they assured Château Minuty’s reputation and presence in the finest restaurants on the French Riviera.

1990 - The modern era - today Jean-Etienne and François Matton have taken over Minuty, pushing the estate even further forward. They have left their mark by continuing to restructure the vineyard, replacing the Carignan and Ungi Blanc varietals with Grenache and Rolle and by streamlining the winery equipment to create a modern, state of the art facility. Under their leadership, the reputation of Minuty’s wines has expanded greatly throughout France and around the world with a presence in over 75 countries. In 2012, major renovations were undertaken in order to improve the Estate’s visitor experience. Surrounding themselves with renowned architects and interior designers, upgrades were made to the tasting cellar and a second barrel-housing cellar as well as a meeting room and a tasting room for professionals were built.

SAVOIR-FAIRE

Château Minuty is one of the foremost winemakers in the Côtes de Provence region, producing high quality rosé wines. The combination of an historical savoir-faire and advanced technology ensures the wine’s continued quality.

Minuty wines begin with the vines in a protected environment - Minuty puts a great importance on enriching its soil through the use of natural manure, rich in organic matter, originating from local goats and sheep. Working the soil allows the micro-organisms present in the earth to breathe, enables better penetration of rain water and facilitates root submersion from the early years of growth, allowing the necessary nutrients and water from the sub-soil to be procured. The vines are harvested in an ecologically sustainable environment without weed killers or pesticides. A Protected Woodland Area surrounds the vineyards, guaranteeing a unique and high quality ecosystem.

Château Minuty is one of the last estates in the Côtes de Provence region whose harvest is entirely hand picked, ensuring that the grapes arrive at the cellars in perfect condition, thus limiting the extraction of plant matter in the must.

In an ever-greater concern for precision and quality improvement, our vinification is becoming more and more parcel based. Combining the expression of our terroir with the know-how of our winery is our ongoing goal.

SAINT-TROPEZ PENINSULA

On the Saint-Tropez peninsula, the Château Minuty vineyard puts southern grape varietals on centre stage. A remarkable domain on the breathtaking Saint-Tropez peninsula overlooking the iconic Bay of St Tropez, the Château Minuty winery is remarkably well situated on the hillsides of the villages of Gassin and Ramatuelle and the vines benefit from a temperate, maritime climate.

Southern grape varietals in the limelight. Minuty’s great rosés are produced mainly from Grenache, known as the “king of rosés”, and Tibouren, the emblematic varietal of the Saint-Tropez peninsula, used to keep local character in the wines. The white wines are produced mainly from Rolle, which has been grown for many generations in the Var. As for the reds, they are produced from Syrah and Mourvèdre, the grape varietal that flourishes in the schist soils found along the Mediterranean coast." Minuty

THE JOURNEY OF MARCEL OTT

In 1896, after a tour of France’s many vineyards, Marcel Ott, a young graduate in agronomy engineering from Alsace, finally found an estate that inspired him. To set the scene, we are in Provence. The Mediterranean is lapping at the shore a mere stone’s throw away...

In these parts, growing vines is the legacy of ancient times. Alas, a short while before Marcel Ott’s discovery, phylloxera had wreaked havoc on the vines. The land was cheaper, but the vineyards would have to be replanted. The wine had lost a great deal of its soul in the vineyard’s reconstruction. Marcel Ott bought several estates and began renovating them with the determined ambition to create great Provencal wines from noble grape varieties.

Today, 120 years later, Jean-François Ott has dedicated his life to his ancestor’s love for the site. In 2004, Domaines Ott* joined Louis Roederer and its fabulous selection of wine craftsmen.

Jean-François and his teams run three estates: Château de Selle, Clos Mireille and Château Romassan. Each of these properties has its own individual charm and personality. Each can be proud of their extremely elegant rosé, red and white wines. In their cellars reigns one sovereign wine: the famous “Cœur de Grain”.

THE ETERNAL YOUTH OF THE AMPHORA

Cœur de Grain represents wine-making genius, and its bottle could be considered a veritable master-stroke...

What proud and skilled vintner has never dreamed of providing their wine with the sanctum of an exclusive, unique and instantly recognisable bottle? In 1930, René Ott did exactly that. He, who never stopped loving Provence, its hills and shorelines punctuated by Cypresses and uninterrupted rows of vines, created a bottle with slender curves inspired by the grace of the landscape.

Today, it is still the signature of Domaines Ott* and it evokes the memory of an elegant amphora that kept the wine cool many centuries ago.

CLOS MIREILLE

In the 1930s, Marcel Ott fell in love with a very old property, right on the coast by the intense blue of the Mediterranean. Clos Mireille overlooks the sea at La Londe Les Maures, near the Fort of Brégançon. With all the patience of a passionate amateur, Ott replanted and consolidated the vineyards, which were cooled by the sea’s spray, warmed by the dry hillside air, on land reclaimed from mulberry, olive and umbrella pines. Close to the edifice built by Benedictine monks in the 18th century, the vines soon started producing exceptional grapes bursting with flavour and nourished by both sea and sun.

At Clos Mireille, the average age of the vines is sixteen years old. The soil is composed of schists. Planted on foothills on the shores of the Mediterranean, the vineyard’s location is unusual. The character of the wines is made even more exceptional in that the clay soil on this ancient rocky outcrop contains no limestone. Its broad sea-facing orientation gives Clos Mireille wines their inimitable character. The microclimate and sea spray create perfect conditions for producing subtle and distinctive wines.

CHÂTEAU DE SELLE

Château de Selle was the first estate acquired by Marcel Ott in 1912. It is in Taradeau, near Draguignan, on soil where only olive, lavender and mulberry trees used to grow. Not far from Thoronet Abbey, close to a former 18th century residence of the Counts of Provence, the soil is gypsum, red clay, dolomite and sandstone mixed with gravel and stone, today producing highly distinguished and elegant wines. Perched on high limestone inland slopes where it is sheltered from winter frosts, the estate enjoys a microclimate of mild winters, early springs and warm and dry summers, always with a great deal of sunshine.

Vines are grown in the same way on terraced vineyards. Production is constant, respectful of the environment and well-balanced. The wines draw their flavours from the arid climate and minerals in the soil, demonstrating exceptional character. The average age of the vines at Château de Selle is nineteen years old. Wines are made from an accomplished blend of several grape varieties with which half of the estate’s 140 hectares are planted: Cabernet Sauvignon lends complexity, elegance and magnificent strength, Grenache provides a full-bodied texture, Cinsault adds a delicate and rounded touch, while Syrah gives its rich colour to the blends.
