Domaine Ott was founded by Marcel Ott who set about restoring the region’s reputation when he arrived in Provence. Clos Mireille is one of the 3 vineyards of Domaines Ott, alongside Château de Selle and Château Romassan. The domaine is famous for its Coeur de Grain Rosé made by the ‘saignee’ method and presented in an iconic bottle. With raspberry fruits and rose petal aromas, this is a light and refreshing wine, highly regarded in St Tropez.
A bright personality, this wine is a reflection of its terroir on the coast facing the Mediterranean, a land of schists completely free of limestone. Working with the ocean spray, the dry hillside air and generous sunshine, the salty soil helps shape the singular, elegant character of a young vineyard with a passionate heart. The Clos Mireille Rosé is an expression of a blend of various grapes typical of the Côtes de Provence appellation: Grenache, the majority grape, chosen for its full-bodied texture, Cinsault for its well-known softness and Syrah for its fruity roundness.
The wine is a very pale pink highlighted with golden, orange and even vermilion tints. Its bouquet reveals fresh fruit (mango, melon) punctuated with lemony notes. On the palate, its freshness develops through citrus aromas around a resolutely mineral core before ending with a subtly persistent finish.
