Provence is located in southeastern France, bordering Italy, and is the birthplace of the most prestigious rosé wines in the world. Domaine Ott is certainly the best representative of these. Chateau de Selle, Le Clos Mireille and later, Chateau Romassan are at the foundations of this wine empire.
Acquired in 1912, and located in the highlands of the Var department in the heart of the Côtes de Provence, Château de Selle has a total of 110 hectares, of which 45 are used for vine growing. The vineyards surround a magnificent, 18th century country house, a former home of the Counts of Provence. The estate, entirely cut into the rocky ground by Marcel Ott and his children and grandchildren, has been remodeled and replanted several times.
In 2004, Domaine Ott became part of the prestigious Louis Roederer group.
Very pale salmon, almost grey, with very little colour extraction.
Very fragrant, with peach aromas and red fruit mingling with notes of sour apples, against a floral, rose petal backdrop.
Delicious and fresh, revealing red fruit, a pronounced silky texture, good acidity and a long, fragrant finish.
Produced since 1930, the Coeur de Grain Rosé is the company's most prestigious wine. Synonymous with elegance and distinction, it is served in the world’s best restaurants.
It is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah, always carefully hand harvested. After a gentle pressing, followed by ageing in oak barrels, the wine reveals its most charming, appetizing side. A caress!
Recommended with a tartare of Mediterranean bluefin tuna and white fish.
