DOMAINES OTT CHATEAU DE SELLE PROVENCE ROSE 2020
A subtle balance between structure and finesse, this wine is a perfect illustration of the precision required to make a rosÃ©, the rigorous process that celebrates the flesh of the fruit and the very heart of the grape...The wine is a reflection of the complexity of its limestone hillsides and arid soil; austerity bathed in dazzling sunshine.
The Chateau de Selle Rose combines various grape varieties from the Cotes de Provence appellation, including a majority of Grenache creating the delicate colour and vinous character. The Cinsault adds softness and the Syrah and the Mourvedre bring fruit.
This pale pink wine with golden tints releases fragrances of citrus fruit and orchard flowers enveloped in spice. On the palate, the immediate effect is elegant and open, developing subtle aromas with a lemony edge before a sweet finish of appealing length.
Crystal-clear, pink-gold hue. The nose opens with the freshness of citrusfruit (pomelo, bergamot) then reveals elegant floral notes mingled with yellow peach and mango. The wine fresh and silky on entry and thengrows on the palate revealing aromas of kumquat and a mineral character that lead to a lingering and delicately spicy finish.
Blend: 65% Grenache, 20% Cinsault, 7% Syrah, 8% Mouvedre
93 points - Vinous
"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. Drinking window: 2022 - 2026"

"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 rosÃ©s of Domaines Ott, this is a wine that is often better in its second year."

"This is big on drinkability with light cherry, strawberry and peach aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, creamy and minerally with fresh, stony character. Vivid at the end. Another gorgeous Ott. Drink now."
