281 is the pinnacle of rosé in the Côtes de Provence, the icon of Château Minuty, France and Europe's leading premium rosé producer. 281 refers to the Pantone number for the royal blue color that elegantly cascades down the side of the bottle, evoking the sky and the sea of Minuty’s French Riviera home.

While nearly translucent in color, this is a wine of aromatic intensity with a rich bouquet of citrus fruit and white flower notes. There is great depth on the palate with white peach flavors and a pronounced mineral structure that come together seamlessly.

  • Grape Varieties: 90% Grenache, 10% Syrah

Origins

Château Minuty is only half a mile from the sea in Saint-Tropez, where one can stand amongst the vines and look out towards the breathtaking blue horizon, dotted with sailboats and yachts. Since its founding in 1936, the family owned estate has become woven into the fabric of the local culture - from Saint-Tropez to Monaco - where it abounds in glamorous beach clubs, restaurants and luxury retailers. While each bottle of Minuty presents an invitation to experience the French Riviera lifestyle, these wines are not only destined for the beach. Minuty is also the leading Provence rosé in the French Alps for a refreshing "après ski!"

As the world's top producer of premium rosé, the Minuty family is admired for their commitment to innovation, such as creating the elongated “Provencal bottle” shape. Most importantly, third generation brothers Jean-Etienne and François Matton replanted their vineyards in the 1990s to focus on Grenache - and this critical decision ultimately defined what is now seen as the style of Provence rosé.

Today, Minuty’s rigorous attention to sustainable viticulture, 100% hand-harvesting fruit and preservation of aromatics and freshness allows them to achieve their overall objective of producing wines of elegance, complexity and accessibility. Above all, Minuty is defining what a great, luxury rosé should be.
