Domaines Ott – The Queen of Rosé


Domaine Ott – The Queen of Rosé

Domaines Ott is the most coveted rosé in the world. 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 vines is the legacy of ancient times. Today, 120 years later, cousins Christian and Jean-François Ott dedicate their life to their ancestor’s love for the site, exemplified by their single estates: Château de Selle; Château Romassan, and; Clos Mireille.
This wonderful “Taste of Domaines Ott” contains 2 bottles of each legendary Estate plus a Magnum of Château De Selle:
Chateau de Selle
2018 Château de Selle
Château de Selle was the first estate acquired by Marcel Ott in 1912. It is in Taradeau, with distinctive terroir producing highly distinguished and elegant wines.
Vines are grown on terraced vineyards and the wines draw their flavors from the arid climate and minerals in the soil, demonstrating exceptional character. Wines are made from an accomplished blend of several grape varieties with which half of the estate’s 140 hectares are planted: Cabernet Sauvignon lends complexity, elegance and magnificent strength, Grenache provides a full-bodied texture, Cinsault adds a delicate and rounded touch, while Syrah gives its rich color to the blends.
2018 Chateau Romassan
Acquired by the Ott family in 1956, it took thirty years of hard work and experience for the old Château Romassan to produce great wines typical of the Bandol AOC appellation. The estate is located in the heart of the celebrated Bandol winemaking region.

Indigenous to the area, Mourvèdre is the estate’s primary grape variety—particularly suited to the arid climate and austere soil. Its calm temperament is revealed in the strength of its harmonies, its robust structure and its staying power both on the palate and in the cellar. This singular land with its sun-drenched and particularly dry microclimate produces sophisticated and very powerful wines.
Chateau Romassan
Clos Mireille
2018 Clos Mireille
In the 1930s, Marcel Ott fell in love with Clos Mireille, a very old property, right on the coast by the intense blue of the Mediterranean.

Planted on foothills on the shores of the Mediterranean, the vineyard’s location is unusual. The character of the wines is made even more exceptional in that the clay soil on this ancient rocky outcrop contains no limestone. Its broad sea-facing orientation gives Clos Mireille wines their inimitable character.
