In 1896, Marcel Ott, a young agricultural engineer from Alsace, settled in Provence with the ambition that this vineyard, greatly impacted by phylloxera, could produce fine wines. Today, the Ott family still perpetuates this know-how in order 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 the 1930s, the iconic and unmistakable Domaines Ott* bottle is a sign of the quality of these fine Provence wines.
In 2004, Domaines Ott* joined the Louis Roederer house.
The Clos Mireille vineyard, a very old terroir which benefits from a maritime influence, is planted on shale soils. This microclimate and these exceptional terroirs lead to the production of fine Côtes de Provence wines.
A rare phenomenon, the 2019 vintage began with strong heat in February, contrasted by cooler conditions from April to May, which slowed down the crop cycle. Flowering took place under optimal conditions with sunny days and cool nights.
Excellent sanitary conditions and high temperatures were maintained until the harvest in mid-August. The harvest is very qualitative and the fruit showcased a pleasant balance and a beautiful expression.
Bright and crystalline, this wine is a delicate pale yellow colour.
Complex and aromatic, the nose blends notes of yellow melon and lemon zest with floral aromas (jasmine, acacia) elevated by a subtle hint of vanilla.
Tense and fresh, the palate reveals a silky and velvety texture. The palate harmoniously blends a very pure style with a rare aromatic complexity.
