Domaines Ott Clos Mireille Cœur de Grain Rosé Côtes De Provence 2014

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.

Vintage Information

Flowering was early due to a warm spring leading into a summer without excessive heat, and finishing with a mild late season. These particularly favourable weather conditions allowed for an ideal and consistent period of sunshine well suited to a slow ripening of the grapes giving them excellent aromatics. Expect nice freshness, lively aromas, and good acidity without excess; an almost perfect balance

Tasting Note

A very fine crystalline peach colour with sparkling golden pink tints.In the initial nose, the wine expresses its minerality and then light notes of fresh fruit reveal mandarin, peach, and mango. In the mouth, there is a beautiful harmony in which the richness and freshness of the notes of Asian grapefruit give the wine a fine balance.
The lengthy finish has great finesse, combining the characteristics of a sunny vintage and the expression of the terroir.

Food Pairing

All Mediterranean cuisine - particularly carpaccio and tartars.

Serving Suggestion

Best served at 10°-12°C.
