Minuty Ch. Rose et Or (Cotes de Provence)A blend of hand-harvested Grenache and Tibouren grapes; the Tibouren variety is rarely found far from this stretch of the Mediterranean and adds a herbal quality to the palate. Herbicides are not used in the vineyards and the soil is worked mechanically with a plough to control weeds. After manually sorting, the best grapes are used for this cuvée, the grapes are crushed, destemmed, chilled and settled. The skins are kept in contact with the must for just enough time to impart a light salmon-pink colour to the finished wine. Shows citrus fruits and white flowers on the nose; the palate has an intense freshness and finesse which offers notes of pink grapefruit and white peach.
