Winemaker Notes

Les Domaniers is part of Ott Selection. These are wines that have been produced from some of the oldest vines and most noble varietals from select growers throughout Provence. The wines are produced using the traditional vinification methods of Domaines Ott, founded in 1912 by Alsatian engineer Marcel Ott. The winemaking team carefully selects the grape lots and produces wines they consider to be worthy and excellent value for wines from the Cotes de Provence.

Wine & Spirits
From the négociant arm of Domaines Ott, this grenache-based rosé is compact and firm, the tangy, pale red fruit tightly bound in vibrant acidity. As it sits in the glass, the flavors expand to herbal scents and ferrous earth, adding to the complexity. It has the substance for an herbed pork tenderloin.

Domaines Ott, Provence, France

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).

Located in the Côtes de Provence appellation, Château de Selle, the 18th century home of the Counts de Provence, was the first property acquired by the Ott family in 1912. The winery is perched high on a plateau, enjoying abundant sunshine and an arid soil.

Clos Mireille was acquired by the Ott family in 1935. The estate’s picturesque seafront location is known for its mix of shale and clay soils; the schistous soil dates back some 340 million years. The microclimate and the sea spray provide highly favorable conditions for both the rosé and the white wines. Château Romassan was acquired in 1956 and lies at the foot of the village of Le Castellet in the heart of the Bandol appellation. The property was entirely remodeled and re-planted over a 30-year period. The estate’s country house dates back to the 18th century and its cellars have superbly vaulted ceilings.

It was Provence that inspired the iconic bottle shape for René Ott. Using the landscape and Roman amphoras as inspiration, René carved a timeless design that embodied his vision.

Provence

More than just a European vacation hotspot and the rosé capital of the world, Provence is a coastal, southeastern French appellation increasingly 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 its 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 its 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, from 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. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

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 will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
