2016 Domaines Ott "Château de Selle" Côtes de Provence Rosé

SKU #1318410 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Pale in color, this ripe wine is beautifully balanced. It does have rich fruit, raspberries and wild strawberries. It also has a fine texture with plenty of acidity as well as a touch of pepper. (RV)  (7/2017)

90 points Wine Spectator

 An alluring rosé, with persimmon, orange pith, jicama and mineral notes streaking through, all set against a backdrop of white peach. Has range and precision. (JM)  (10/2017)

K&L Notes

Domaines Ott is a wine company based in the south of France and the producer of some of the most prestigious rosé wines in Provence. The estate was founded by Marcel Ott, who arrived in Provence in 1896 and began planting vines. The three estates were added over the course of the 20th Century: Château de Selle was acquired in 1912, Clos Mireille in 1936, and finally, Château Romassan in 1956. Each of the three estates makes two wines, and all are bottled in the distinctively shaped bottles which represent the undulating landscape of Provence.
