domaines ott chateau de selle provence rose 2018 3l
A subtle balance between structure and finesse, this wine is a perfect illustration of the precision required to make a rose, 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.
W&S93, Wine & Spirits
"De Selle was Marcel Ott’s first estate, an imposingly rocky slope of gypsum, red clay, dolomite, gravel and sandstone in Taradeau that he purchased in 1912. The rosé it produced in 2018—a blend of grenache with cinsault, syrah and mourvèdre—is more open than the Clos Mireille: De Selle is immediately inviting in its fresh, floral scents of melon and rosemary. The urge to drink it becomes only more immediate when the tangy wine hits the palate, delivering seashell minerality like a jolt of electricity. Bright and energetic, it would make short work of a dozen oysters."
RP90, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Almost more white or straw colored than rosé, the 2018 Cotes de Provence Rose Chateau de Selle is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Crushed stone accents peach, melon and lime on the nose, while the palate is light to medium-bodied, silky and long, finishing with a tactile—almost chalky—sensation"
