The expressive and complex nose reveals a mosaic of aromas, from white peach and candied melon to hawthorn blossom.
The fresh, energetic attack offers notes of white currant and lime. The wine’s lovely, velvety texture coats the palate with succulent fruity flavours and is built with remarkable precision and finesse.
Zesty citrus notes and a pleasant salinity linger on the wine’s long finish.
Blend: Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Rolle
Situated in one of the oldest wine regions in France, Domaines Ott was founded in 1896 when Marcel Ott arrived in Provence and set about restoring the region’s reputation after the poor quality replanting following phylloxera. He founded Château de Selle in 1912, Clos Mireille in 1935 and then Château Romassan in 1956. Today, cousins Jean-François and Christian Ott dedicate their life to their ancestor’s love for the site. They carefully hand pick and sort their grapes to ensure that they meet the high standards they have set for themselves. In 2004, Domaines Ott joined Louis Roederer.
Three estates make Domaines d’Ott. Château de Selle is a 140 hectares of vines with an average of 19 years old and planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah. Clos Mireille is a 50 hectares of vine with an average age of sixteen years old and is planted with Rolle and Semillon for the production of white and Grenache, Cinsault, Cabernet sauvignon and Syrah for reds and rosés. Finally Château Romassan has 69 hectares of vines with an average of 25 years old and planted with Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah. The domaine is famous for its Coeur de Grain Rosé made by the ‘saignee’ method at each estate and presented in an iconic bottle shaped like an amphora.
