Cuvée des Minettes, a choice name for a well-represented domain.

If this name evokes at first sight the elegant young girls of the South of France, it is not by chance. Christine Cheylan wanted a modern, sparkling and refreshing cuvée, in short a pink reference to the Minettes of Provence! Moreover, her father Robert has always given her the affectionate nickname of "Minette".

But, if this fresh wine with its slightly salmon-colored reflections seduces in restaurants and festive evenings, it is also because its mouth is structured with a beautiful vivacity. This gives the Cuvée des Minettes a perfect balance of finesse, elegance and freshness

The grape varieties used, Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah, are worked by direct pressing in order to obtain a very clear robe, a real asset for the amateurs of contemporary rosé wines.

Its vinification in cold stabulation and cold fermentation give this wine notes of citrus and flowers.
