Etoile, a tete de cuvee rose from Domaine Ott that blends the best lots from each of their three estates in Provence and Bandol. Each year the blend is decided a la minute, after pressing the juice from each individual lot. The best of these equal Etoile. 2020 is a blend of 80% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, fermented in cement and ceramic tanks, with 25% subsequently aged in cylindrical ceramic tanks.
The first nose is all grapefruit and vanilla. opening up to lemon, citrus, and other more tropical fruit tones. The palate is luscious and tangy, becoming fatter and rounder with tropical elements beginning to dominate.
95 Points - Vinous
"Diaphanous pink. Highly expressive mineral-tinged red berry honeydew melon and nectarine aromas show excellent focus and a suave floral nuance emerges with air. Palate-staining peach nectar raspberry and honeysuckle flavors are given lift and back-end cut by a minerally undercurrent. Concentrated but impressively lithe as well. There's a resonating mineral quality on the penetrating finish which leaves behind a lingering floral note. - Josh Raynolds (Drink between 2022-2028)"
94 Points points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"An assemblage of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre blended from three estates (Chateau Romassan Chateau de Selle and Clos Mireille) 25% of the 2020 Vin de France Rose Etoile was aged in spherical ceramic vessels while the rest went into stainless steel. It's an extremely pale pink in hue with coppery inflections while the nose offers hints of crushed stone lime zest and grapefruit. Hints of nectarine give the briefest impression of ripeness on the medium-bodied palate which quickly reverts to bright citrus a crisp streamlined feel and a long zesty finish. It looks as if it could drink well for a few years but I personally don't see it being worth the price premium it commands over the single-estate wines."
