Crystal-clear, pink-gold hue. The nose opens with the freshness of citrus fruit (pomelo, bergamot) then reveals elegant floral notes mingled with yellow peach and mango. The wine fresh and silky on entry and then grows on the palate revealing aromas of kumquat and a mineral character that lead to a lingering and delicately spicy finish. This wine pairs excellent with all Mediterranean cuisine.
Blend: 65% Grenache, 20% Cinsault, 7% Syrah, 8% Mouvèdre
Pale and coppery as usual, Ott's 2020 Cotes de Provence Rose Chateau de Selle boasts restrained aromas of peach, melon and citrus underscored by hints of crushed stone. In the mouth, it's medium-bodied and concentrated, with ample intensity, a slightly creamy texture and a long, mouthwatering finish. Like the other top rosés of Domaines Ott, this is a wine that is often better in its second year

Pale salmon skin. Mineral-tinged red currant, raspberry, blood orange and white peach scents are complemented by a suave lavender nuance that builds in the glass. Silky and penetrating on the palate, offering concentrated red berry and pit fruit flavors sharpened by a bitter suggestion of orange pith. Finishes very long and smooth, with repeating floral and pit fruit notes. Drinking window: 2022 - 2026
