Ott Selle Rose Coeur Grain 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Château de Selle Côtes de Provence rosé has a pale gold color with brilliant highlights. The noise is dominated by peach and grapefruit aromas, with floral nuances of fleur-de-lis. It is generous and fresh on the palate, with a spicy finish. The elegance and finesse of this wine make it an ideal accompaniment for a whole meal. It can be served with both delicate and strong flavored dishes or simply as an aperitif.

Domaine Ott was founded by Alsacian wine enthusiast Marcel Ott in 1896. However, production did not begin in earnest until 1912, and took place among three estates: Château de Selle (Taradeau), Clos Mireille (La Londe Les Maures) and Château Romassan (La Castellet). In 1930, the Coeur de Grain rosé, for which Ott is best known, began being marketed outside of France. Today, this is one of the world’s most famous rosés.  In 2004, Domaine Ott joined forces with the Louis Roederer Group. Since 2009, Christian and François Ott have continued to produce the family brand. The wines are produced without the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. In addition to the famous rosés, Domaine Ott also produces red and white table wines.  Read less

This owns a virtually smoky, mineral-like complexity which emerges on the nose, followed by allusions of cherry fruit underscored by dramatic freshness upon a lengthy finish.

Hand-picking, extremely selective sorting and delicate pressing of the grapes, and finally maturing in oak barrels, are just some of the reasons why Domaine Ott Rose has a reputation of being "the finest rose in the world." A delicious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Cinsault. Domaines Ott's winery is located on a former dwelling of the Counts of Provence, a superb 18th century country house in Provence. The surrounding estate, entirely carved into the rocky land by Marcel Ott, his children and grandchildren, has been remodelled and replanted several times over.
