Domaines Ott By.Ott Côtes de Provence Rosé 2017
By.Ott is a new wine from Domaines Ott made in the Chateau de Selle cellar. The grapes are hand picked, followed by strict and selective sorting followed by an extremely delicate pressing of whole bunches with a super short maceration to produce the beautiful light color. Slow fermentation then takes place in thermo-regulated vats. A blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah, this wine is a lovely way to sample the great Ott* tradition in an accessible, friendly and elegant wine.
Pale and pretty in crystal clear pink with orange undertones the nose is delicate and fruity with notes of white peach and apricot mixed with passion fruit and mango. The taste is full, fresh and crisp with echoes of the fruity aroma amplified by citrus zest and sweet spices like cinnamon and cardamom.

VinousLight bright orange. Lively, mineral-tinged red berry and citrus pith scents and flavors, along with a deeper cherry note. Concentrated yet lithe in character, showing good energy and a touch of honeysuckle on the back half. The mineral note sharpens a long, focused finish that shows appealing sweetness and no rough edges. This wine is made from the estate's young vines in its Côtes de Provence vineyards.
