Domaines Ott Château de Selle Rosé 2021
|Region||France, Provence, Bandol|
Pale and coppery as usual, Ott's 2020 Cotes de Provence Rose Chateau de Selle boasts restrained aromas of peach, melon and citrus underscored by hints of crushed stone. In the mouth, it's medium-bodied and concentrated, with ample intensity, a slightly creamy texture and a long, mouthwatering finish. Like the other top rosés of Domaines Ott, this is a wine that is often better in its second year.
Pale salmon skin. Mineral-tinged red currant, raspberry, blood orange and white peach scents are complemented by a suave lavender nuance that builds in the glass. Silky and penetrating on the palate, offering concentrated red berry and pit fruit flavors sharpened by a bitter suggestion of orange pith. Finishes very long and smooth, with repeating floral and pit fruit notes.
This rosé is focused and graceful, with a beam of tangerine zest and grapefruit interwoven with rosewater, jicama, spice and vivid mineral accents. Elements of sea salt and heather detail the finish. Drink now. 10,450 cases imported.
