    Minuty, Provence, France
    Image of winery
    The Matton-Farnets have been in the wine industry for almost three centuries, beginning at the Domaine de Chateauneuf in Vidauban, and continuing at Chateau Minuty from 1936 -- where Gabriel Farnet, the grandfather of current owners François and Jean-Etienne, set up. Gabriel Farnet replanted the entire wine estate and returned Chateau Minuty to its former glory. It was built under Napoleon III, as was the small chapel that the cuvee de l’Oratoire takes its name from (this wine was the estate's flagship bottle for a long time). The most prestigious hotels on the Côote d’Azur still display its Burgundian-shaped bottles. In 1955, Chateau Minuty was one of 23 estates to be consecrated as a classed growth of the Cotes de Provence.

    Monique Farnet, Gabriel’s daughter, and her husband Etienne Matton -- who was president of the Classed Growths for many years -- replanted traditional local grape varietals like Tibouren, Rolle and Grenache, keeping yields low in the quest for high quality wines. Due to their rigorous work in the vineyards, they have ensured Chateau Minuty’s reputation and presence at the best restaurants of the Cote d'Azur.

    Today Jean-Etienne and François Matton have taken over, and continue to improve, Minuty. They have put their stamp on it by restructuring the vineyards and replacing the Carignan and Ugni Blanc with Grenache and Rolle, and by streamlining the winery with modern, up-to-date, efficient equipment. Jean-Ettiene and Francois strive to expand Minuty's presence internationally.

    Provence

    View all wine

    More than just a European vacation hotspot and the rosé capital of the world, Provence is a coastal, southeastern French appellation increasingly producing interesting wines of all colors. The warm, breezy Mediterranean climate is ideal for grape growing and the diverse terrain and soil types allow for a variety of wine styles within the region. Adjacent to the Rhône Valley, Provence shares some characteristics with its northwestern neighbor—namely, the fierce Mistral wind and the plentiful wild herbs (such as rosemary, lavender, juniper and thyme) often referred to as ‘garrigue.’ The largest appellation here is Côtes de Provence, followed by Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence.

    Provence is internationally acclaimed for its dry, refreshing, pale-hued rosé wines, which make up the vast majority of the region’s production. These are typically blends, often dominated by Mourvèdre and supplemented by Grenache, Cinsault, Tibouren, and other varieties.

    A small amount of full-bodied, herbal white wine is made here—particularly from the Cassis appellation, from Clairette and Marsanne. Other white varieties used throughout Provence include Roussane, Sémillon, Vermentino (known locally as Rolle) and Ugni blanc.

    Perhaps the most interesting wines of the region, however, are the red wines of Bandol. Predominantly Mourvèdre, these are powerful, structured, and ageworthy wines with lush berry fruit and savory characteristics of earth and spice.

    Rosé Wine

    Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

    Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
