Domaines Ott Clos Mireille Rosé 2017
Domaines Ott produces beautiful Rosé wines from three domaines in Provence and Bandol. The Clos Mireille is the terroir that is located right by the sea, giving it a little salty character and more crunchy fruit. The family considers it to be very classic Provence in style. The Château de Selle was the first wine produced by the founder, and it is all about finesse and elegance.
The philosophy of this 4th generation family is to have total respect for the vines and the environment and to honor their founder Marcel Ott, an agricultural engineer with a pioneer spirit, who set out to create a wine estate in 1896 and created the best Dry Rosé in the world.

Wine AdvocateThe archetypal pale Mediterranean rosé, the 2017 Cotes de Provence Rose Clos Mireille boasts briny aromas evocative of the sea, with pink grapefruit, cherry and lime notes. A blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah, it's medium-bodied but feels lighter, with a clean, refreshing finish that includes hints of wet stones, peach and citrus. It's a terrific rosé for drinking this summer (or anytime).
Wine SpectatorAlluring, with peach, mango and white cherry notes rippling through, while creamy edges and a lingering rose petal perfume complete the seduction. Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Rolle. Drink now.
Wine EnthusiastThis wine comes from vineyards close to the sea. That's possibly why it has a touch of saltiness as well as pepper and spice flavors that contrast with the rich red-currant fruit and crisp acidity. The ensemble makes for a ripe, full wine that is ready to drink.
