This is the most famous producer of Dry Rosé in the world, located in southern France in Provence. Full of finesse and richness, with focused berry, orange peel and spice complexities, Domaine Ott is the quintessential example of Dry Rosé from Provence. Marcel Ott, an agricultural engineer with a pioneer spirit, set out to create a wine estate in 1896 and this is considered by many to be the best Dry Rosé in the world. Made from handpicked Cabernet, Grenache and Cinsault grapes, the wine is ultimately aged in oak for 8 months giving it more body and dry extract. Chateau de Selle was acquired in 1912. It is situated on the plateaux of the Var, not far from Le Luc, in the heart of Côtes de Provence country encompassing 110 hectares, including 48 devoted to wine production. The Château was the former dwelling of the Counts of Provence and is a superb 18th-c. country house. The surrounding estate was entirely carved into the rocky land by Marcel Ott, his children and grandchildren.

Wine AdvocateAlmost more white or straw colored than rosé, the 2018 Cotes de Provence Rose Chateau de Selle is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Crushed stone accents peach, melon and lime on the nose, while the palate is light to medium-bodied, silky and long, finishing with a tactile-almost chalky-sensation. Expect it to drink well through the end of 2020.
