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).
Château de Selle, the 18th-century home of the Counts of Provence, is located in the Côtes de Provence appellation, inland on limestone hillsides, enjoying abundant sunshine. The arid soil is comprised of 40-50% stone, and despite the presence of highly fertile quantities of clay, it produces small amounts of concentrated wines.
The rosé is a 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. This wine pairs well with flambéed or glazed monkfish with vegetables, grilled poultry in a sauce, or fruit desserts. (from Domaines Ott)
