Winemaker Notes

A wonderful pastel color with salmon notes and hints of copper and pink gold. The elegant and delicate bouquet develops aromas of candied melon and citrus zest, both fresh and heady. On the palate the immediate impression is energizing, like morning dew, with bursts of fruity redcurrant note. The seductive balance is a vibrant tribute to the Clos Mireille terroir, combining the generosity of precise ripeness with the crisp freshness of summer fruits such as apricot and peach.

Wine & Spirits
Marcel Ott bought this seaside estate in 1935; today, it's owned and managed by Louis Roederer. The vines in its schist soils regularly produce a restrained rose, like this one, elegant in its satin texture, quiet in its stony flavor. A blend of grenache with cinsault and a dash of syrah aged in oak casks for six months, it needs time in the glass (or, better yet, another year in the bottle) to reveal its fruit, a blush of apricot flavor that echoes its pale hue.

Wine Enthusiast
From a beautiful estate close to the sea, this wine has a lightly salty character. That contrasts with the zinging energy and ripeness of the fruit and balanced acidity. Citrus zest and spice complete this harmonious wine. Drink from the end of 2017.

In 1896, after a tour of France’s many vineyards, Marcel Ott, a young graduate in agronomy engineering, 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. 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 Christian and Jean-François 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 (both Côtes de Provence) and Château Romassan (Bandol). Each of these properties has its own individual charm and personality. Each can be proud of their extremely elegant rosé, red and white wines.

More than just a European vacation hotspot and rosé capital of the world, Provence is a southeastern France, coastal appellation producing interesting wines of all colors. The warm, breezy Mediterranean climate is ideal for grape growing and the diverse terrain and soil types allow for a variety of wine styles within the region. Adjacent to the Rhône Valley, Provence shares some characteristics with this northwestern neighbor—namely, the fierce Mistral wind and the plentiful wild herbs (such as rosemary, lavender, juniper and thyme) often referred to as garrigue. The largest appellation here is Côtes de Provence, followed by Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence.

Provence is internationally acclaimed for dry, refreshing, pale-hued rosé wines, which make up the vast majority of the region’s production. These are typically blends, often dominated by Mourvèdre and supplemented by Grenache, Cinsault, Tibouren and other varieties.

A small amount of full-bodied, herbal white wine is made here—particularly from the Cassis appellation, of Clairette and Marsanne. Other white varieties used throughout Provence include Roussane, Sémillon, Vermentino (known locally as Rolle) and Ugni Blanc.

Perhaps the most interesting wines of the region, however, are the red wines of Bandol. Predominantly Mourvèdre, these are powerful, structured, and ageworthy wines with lush berry fruit and savory characteristics of earth and spice.

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
