Domaines Ott Clos Mireille Cœur de Grain Rosé Côtes De Provence 2015

Producer Information

Domaines Ott was founded in 1912 by Marcel Ott, an agricultural engineer from Alsace who dreamed of establishing a great wine estate near the Mediterranean. Today, the wineries are owned and managed by Champagne Louis Roederer and produce some of the world’s most prestigious wines, but particularly rosé wines, made at distinctively different estates in Bandol and Côtes de Provence appellations.

Vineyards

This very ancient land is characterised by a combination of schists and clays, and by an absence of limestone. The vineyard’s proximity to the sea explains the inimitable character of the wines produced at Clos Mireille. The microclimate and sea spray create the ideal conditions for the production of extremely rare wines.

Winemaking

The grapes are all hand picked and go through a stringent selective sorting, followed by an extremely delicate pressing process. Fermentation is done in thermo-regulated vats followed by ageing in oak casks for six to eight months.

Tasting Note

A wonderful pastel colour with salmon notes and hints of copper and pink gold. The elegant and delicate bouquet develops aromas of candied melon and citrus zest, both fresh and heady. On the palate the immediate expression is energising, like morning dew, with bursts of fruity redcurrant notes.

The seductive balance is a vibrant tribute to the Clos Mireille terroir, combining the generosity of precise ripeness with the crisp freshness of summer fruits, such as apricot and peach.

Food Pairing

All Mediterranean cuisine - particularly carpaccio and tartars.
