Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has a fine pale peach color with crystalline shimmers of pink-gold. The expressive, fine, delicate nose gives off aromas of peach, citrus fruit and white flowers such as hawthorn. A rich and full-bodied structure follows a lively and firm attack. There is a subtle balance of aromas between hints of fresh fruit (apricot and nectarine) and the smooth, floral notes of lilac. The finish is full-bodied and smooth enhanced by mild spices. This elegant and harmonious wine can be an aperitif or accompany Provençale cuisine.

Blend: 40% Grenache, 40% Cinsault, 14% Syrah, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon

My Notes:

About Domaines Ott:

Domaines Ott was founded in 1912 by Alsatian engineer Marcel Ott. Today, the wineries are owned and managed by Champagne Louis Roederer, producing some of the world’s most prestigious wines. These wines are made at three distinctively different estates: Château Romassan (Bandol), Clos Mireille and Château de Selle (both Côtes de Provence).
