A garnet red brightened with purple tints. The bouquet reveals an aromatic array of red summer fruits dominated by Burlat cherry, immediately followed by redcurrant aromas. The silky palate is elegant and reveals the fruit-driven freshness and green peppercorns with a subtly liquorice edge to the finish. The whole rests upon a light tannic structure creating a sense of velvety softness.
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. He moved to Cavalaire in 1896 and founded Château de Selle in 1912, followed by Clos Mireille in 1935 and then Château Romassan in 1956. These wines are made at the distinctively different estates in the Bandol and Côtes de Provence appellations.
