2012 Domaines Ott "Château de Selle" Côtes de Provence Rosé
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
(made from 50% grenache, 30% cinsault, 15% syrah and 5% cabernet sauvignon): Bright orange-pink. Complex scents of fresh citrus fruits, pink grapefruit and chalky minerals, along with a sexy floral overtone. Stains the palate with energetic citrus fruit and red berry flavors that pick up spiciness with air. Finishes nervy, precise and persistent, with a dusty, stony quality.
Possibly one of the best known Provençal rosé producers (and fastest-selling) that we carry. The Château de Selle rosé from Domaines Ott is a a spicy, grapefruit and apricot-scented and flavored wine with hints of fresh herbs made from a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 15% Syrah and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. 13% abv.
