Domaines Ott Clos Mireille Coeur de Grain Rosé 2021 1.5L
In 1896, Marcel Ott, originally from Alsace, discovered the enchanting Chateau de Selle in Taradeau, Provence. Once a place where olives, lavender, and mulberries thrived, this estate inspired him deeply. Benefiting from a unique microclimate, the wines produced here embody delicacy and elegance, while also possessing remarkable depth. In the 1930s, Marcel Ott's passion led him to the ancient Clos Mireille, perched above the sea in La Londe Les Maures, near Bregançon. The vineyards quickly yielded distinctive yet subtle wines. In 1956, the Ott family acquired Chateau Romassan in Bandol. After years of meticulous terracing and replanting, this estate now produces robust, harmonious and age-worthy wines. The renowned Cœur de Grain label reflects the genius of winemaking and pays homage to the elegant amphorae of centuries past. Today, 120 years later, cousins Jean-François and Christian Ott continue to honour their ancestor's profound love for Provence, dedicating their lives to the legacy of exceptional winemaking.

Glistening orange-pink. Vibrant, mineral-accented cherry, peach, and honeydew scents, along with orange pith and floral nuances. Stains the palate with juicy red berry, citrus fruit and lavender flavors that show very good depth as well as liveliness. Shows firm tension and dusty mineral character on the long, penetrating finish, which leaves melon and blood orange notes behind. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com, June 2021, 94 Points
