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. Chateau 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.
Both Provence roses, the Romassan has the distinctive Bandol strength of character made from Mourvedre, Grenache, and Cinsault in the saignee method and planted on the rocky terraces of limestone, sandstone and marl. It is spicier than Chateau de Selle (which is made almost entirely from Cabernet Sauvignon), a subtle wine that has great structure and finesse.
This is the Rolls Royce standard for rosé.
