The young Alsatian agricultural engineer, Marcel Ott, moved to Provence in 1896 with the ambition for this vineyard to produce great wines despite being ravaged by phylloxera.
Today, the OTT family is perpetuating this know-how to produce a range of rosé, red and white Provence wines from three estates: Château de Selle, Clos Mireille and Château Romassan.
Created by René Ott in 1903, the iconic and immediately recognisable Domaines Ott bottle showcases the quality of these great wines.
Domaine Ott joined the Louis Roederer house in 2004.
Magnificently located by the Mediterranean Sea, Clos Mireille enjoys an exceptional location in La Londe-Les-Maures. This very old terroir, which benefits from a maritime influence, is planted on soils of clay shales. This microclimate and these exceptional terroirs produce great rosé wines, rare and with an inimitable style.
A rare phenomenon, the 2019 vintage began with strong heat in February, constrasted by cooler conditions from April to May, which slowed down the crop cycle. Flowering took place under optimal conditions, with sunny days combined with cool nights.
Excellent sanitary conditions and high temperatures were maintained until the harvests in mid-August. The harvests were of a very good quality, with beautiful balances and expressions of fruit.
The wine is bright, delicate and crystalline light yellow.
Complex and aromatic, the nose mixes notes of yellow melon and lemon zest with floral aromas (jasmine, acacia) elevated by a subtle touch of vanilla.
The tight and beautifully fresh palate unveils a silky, velvety texture. The palate harmoniously blends a wonderfully pure style with a rare aromatic complexity.
