Wine information: Clos Mireilleines Ott was established in 1912 by Marcel Ott, an Alsacien who dreamed of creating a great wine estate by the Mediterranean. The estate continued to be family-owned until it was bought out by Champagne Louis Roederer in 2004. Domaines Ott consists of three different estates in the Bandol and Cotes de Provence ACs and produces some of the most prestigious wines in the world, however, it is Rosé that the estate is arguably most famous for. Today the estate is represented by Christian and Francois Ott and comprises Chateau de Selle and Clos Mireille in the Côtes de Provence appellation and Chateau Romassan in Bandol. Clos Mireille is a 41 hectare estate, acquired by the Ott family in 1935 and completely remodelled and replanted in the late 1930s. The estate is located on the seafront and has a mix of shale and clay soils. The microclimate and the sea spray provide highly favourable grape-growing conditions. Clos Mireille Rosé, produced by the saigneé method, is a blend of 69% Grenache, 20% Cinsault and 11% Syrah, the grapes are hand-picked and there is careful bunch sorting followed by a very gentle pressing and maturation in oak barrels and vats for 6 to 8 months.

Tasting Notes: Domaines Ott Clos Mireille Couer de Grain Rosé is one of the best wines from Provence. It is a peachy colour with crystalline highlights. The nose is elegant with notes of white-fleshed fruits including peach. The palate is full and rich in structure. The palate is perfectly balanced between fresh, fruitiness and a more generous richness. There are more lingering notes of peach, and nectarine, on the clean, mineral and elegant finish.

Reviews: "Domaine Ott is widely regarded as the gold standard of rosé....." Jay McInerny, Wall Street Journal
