IT'S HERE!!! THE ROSÉ YOU'VE WAITED FOR…

"One of the most sought-after rosés has arrived! Domaine Ott, the darling of the Cannes Film Festival, is THE wine that made Provençal rosé famous. This seducing, salmon colored rosé gushes with ripe strawberries and raspberries and was recently rated 92 points by Wine Enthusiast, although the allure of this wine is never about the score from critics. Supply won't last long, so don't hesitate!" –Jim Knight, The Wine House

"Pale in color, this ripe wine is beautifully balanced. It does have rich fruit, raspberries and wild strawberries. It also has a fine texture with plenty of acidity as well as a touch of pepper. The wine could age a further few months, so drink at the end of 2017." –Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, July 2017

FROM THE WINERY

A subtle balance between structure and finesse, this wine is a perfect illustration of the precision required to make a rosé, the rigorous process that celebrates the flesh of the fruit and the very heart of the grape... The wine is a reflection of the complexity of its limestone hillsides and arid soil; austerity bathed in dazzling sunshine.

The Château de Selle Rosé combines various grape varieties from the Côtes de Provence appellation, including a majority of Grenache creating the delicate color and vinous character. The Cinsault adds softness and the Syrah and the Mourvèdre bring fruit.

This pale pink wine with golden tints releases fragrances of citrus fruit and orchard flowers enveloped in spice. On the palate, the immediate effect is elegant and open, developing subtle aromas with a lemony edge before a sweet finish of appealing length.

Winery Tasting Notes: Clear, pale hue with peach tints. The complex and elegant nose combines subtle aromas of citrus fruit (grapefruit, lemon), yellow fruit (apricot, peach and pear) and delicate floral notes. The palate is silky initially, and then builds in power and volume. The fruity notes are underpinned by a touch of spice which lingers on the finish.

Blend:
57% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 5% Mourvedre, 2% Syrah, 6% Others

ABOUT DOMAINE OTT

In 1896 after a tour of France's many vineyards, Marcel Ott, a young graduate in agronomy engineering from Alsace, finally found an estate that inspired him. To set the scene, we are in Provence. The Mediterranean is lapping at the shore a mere stone's throw away...

In these parts, growing wines is the legacy of ancient times. Alas, a short while before Marcel Ott's discovery, phylloxera had wreaked havoc on the vines. The land was cheaper, but the vineyards would have to be replanted. The wine had lost a great deal of its soul in the vineyard's reconstruction. Marcel Ott bought several estates and began renovating them with the determined ambition to create great Provencal wines from noble grape varieties.

Today, 120 years later, cousins Jean-François and Christian Ott dedicate their life to their ancestor's love for the site. In 2004, Domaines Ott* joined Louis Roederer and its fabulous selection of wine craftsmen.

Christian and Jean-François run three estates: Château de Selle, Clos Mireille and Château Romassan. Each of these properties has its own individual charm and personality. Each can be proud of their extremely elegant rosé, red and white wines. In their cellars reigns one sovereign wine: the famous "Cœur de Grain".
