Domaines Ott Clos Mireille Blanc Côtes de Provence 2022

Producer Information

Domaines Ott was founded in 1912 by Alsatian engineer Marcel Ott. Today, the wineries are owned and managed by Champagne Louis Roederer, producing some of the world’s most prestigious wines. These wines are made at three distinctively different estates: Château Romassan (Bandol), Clos Mireille and Château de Selle (both Côtes de Provence).



The Clos Mireille terroir, with its vineyards sweeping down towards the Mediterranean Sea, lies in the prestigious La Londe area. It covers 174 hectares classified as a nature reserve.
Our 56 hectares of vines are planted on relatively shallow and well-draining, schist and quartz soils and thrive in this climate of Mediterranean sunshine and near-constant breeze.


The parcels are leveled into espaliers to enable even tilling and planting. The vines are pruned and trained using the double cordon method. The grapes are all picked by hand and go through a stringent selective grape sorting followed by an extremely delicate pressing in vertical presses. Slow (alcoholic and malolactic) fermentation is followed by aging in oak casks. Bottling is done the following spring and then the wine is stored in the cellars for eight to twelve months.

Vintage Information

Once again, the 2022 vintage did not bring much water to our Provençal vineyards. This was very difficult for the vine and was also a real challenge for the winegrower. Over the course of its history, Domaines Ott has evolved to cope well in such conditions. With low rainfall levels up until late June and very high summer temperatures, all of our efforts were focused on keeping our clusters in an environment that was as cool as possible.
To obtain perfectly ripe grapes, we were still hoping for some rain before the harvest. This long-awaited rainfall did not arrive until 17 August which was the very first day of harvesting. But we did not have just rain, we also had some hail, which was fortunately accompanied by heat and wind.
All of the grapes were in the cellars by 29 September.

Tasting Note

White-gold hue with silver tints.
The expressive and luscious nose opens with acacia aromas followed by pomelo peel and then light notes of mango.
The wine is clean on entry to the palate showing a remarkable and slightly mineral tension. Its aromatic structure is rich and complex ranging from notes of bergamot to wild peaches.
Clos Mireille’s Mediterranean terroir comes through on the finish with a masterful salinity
