Meet the Winemakers
Producer: Domaines Ott Winemaker:Christian and Jean-François Ott Region:Bandol, Provence Country: France
This world famous domaine was founded in Provence in 1912 by Marcel Ott, an agricultural engineer who dreamed of creating a great wine estate in the Mediterranean. Château de Selle was planted around an 18th century country house in the Var region and then in the 1950s the Romassan vineyard was planted in the heart of the Bandol region. This Provencal Rosé has the distinctive Bandol strength of character made from Mourvedre, Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah planted on the rocky terraces of limestone, sandstone and marl.
Today, 120 years later, cousins Christian and Jean-François Ott dedicate their life to their ancestor’s love for the site. Christian and Jean-François run three estates: Château de Selle, Clos Mireille and Château Romassan. Each of these properties has its own individual charm and personality.
The Ott style is elegant, and complex, and one of the few Rosé that even improves after a year or two in the bottle.
