About Minuty Wines
Our wines are vibrant in expression. Jewels of freshness and fruit, elegantly presented in their case bottles, with resolutely contemporary lines. Château Minuty is a family winery located in the heart of Provence, overlooking the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, owned by the Matton-Farnet family for eighty years. Château Minuty is the story of the Matton-Farnet family for over 80 years on the Saint-Tropez peninsula. For a Minuty wine, it all starts in the vineyard, in a preserved environment
Great importance is attached to the enrichment of the soil with natural manure from goats and sheep, rich in organic matter. Working the soil allows the microorganisms present in the soil to breathe, prepares the soil for receiving rainwater, and facilitates the deep plunge of the roots, from the first years, to find their water supply in the sub. -ground. The vines are cultivated in reasoned culture, without weedkillers or pesticides. This environment bordered by a protected wooded area guarantees a privileged ecosystem.
Vinification & aging: Respect and expression of the terroir
Minuty is one of the last estates of the Côtes de Provence where the harvest is carried out entirely by hand to ensure the perfect integrity of the grapes when they arrive at the winery and thus limit the extraction of plant matter in the must.
The bunches thus arriving intact pass through the destemmer where the stalk is removed. After light crushing, the grapes are immediately cooled to low temperature and inerted to avoid any oxidation phenomena which would lead to an irreversible loss of aromas and structure. The juices then pass through our latest generation pneumatic presses where they are carefully drained first and then pressed at low pressure in a second to extract their full expression.
After a long fermentation at low temperature to express all the aromatic potential and all its finesse, the wine is racked and then gradually decanted during the winter period.
It is then the period of blending were the characteristics of the vintage and the grape varieties combine to produce our various vintages.
IN AN EVER GREATER CONCERN FOR PRECISION AND IMPROVEMENT OF QUALITY, OUR VINIFICATIONS ARE BECOMING MORE AND MORE FRAGMENTED. THE EXPRESSION OF OUR TERROIR ASSOCIATED WITH THE EXPERIENCE OF OUR VINEYARD IS OUR CONSTANT OBJECTIVE.
Our signature is found in each of the bottles produced thanks to a bottling line equipped with the highest technology in order to best preserve our wines from oxidation.
Even if the rosé wines represent 85% of our production, the red is nonetheless forgotten. After plot selection and green harvesting, our red wines undergo long aging in barrels for a year. During this time, the tannins will soften, the structure of the wine will be reinforced and the finesse will develop. The choice of the origin of the woods and the intensity of the heating will give our cuvées a very particular expression and signature.
