Domaines Ott BY.OTT Côtes de Provence Rosé
Côtes de Provence, France
August 14, 2018, Josh Raynolds
“Bright peach skin color. Lively and focused on the nose, displaying fresh citrus fruit and red berry scents and a touch of succulent herbs. Supple and open-knit, showing good heft to its subtly sweet raspberry and tangerine flavors. Tightens up nicely on the silky finish, which leaves a suave floral note behind.”

“Lots of hot stones, strawberries and hints of cherries. Full-bodied, layered and very flavorful. Yet, it has just the right amount of freshness and minerality to give it that brightness. Drink now.”
Domaines Ott has been pioneering prestige rosé wines since 1912. Founded in 1896 by Marcel Ott, the wine estates of Domaines Ott were acquired by Louis Roederer in 2004. Descendants of the founder carry on the heritage of producing some of the world’s most prestigious wines form the French Riviera.
BY.OTT is a wine produced with all the savoir-faire of the Domaines Ott team in the newly-constructed cellar of Château de Selle. It is a refined and elegant wine for any rosé enthusiast. The blends originate from select vineyards in Côtes de Provence that have been chosen to ensure that the wine is characterized by fruit and freshness with added finesse and complexity.
BY.OTT Côtes de Provence Rosé blends are sourced from Château de Selle and Clos Mireille, as well as two additional trusted growers. The wine is made under the strict supervision of cousins Jean-Francois Ott and Christian Ott, the fourth generation of winemakers. The quality of the wine is perfectly homogenous and consistent, from the first to last bottling. All the winemaking processes are fully controlled – from blending to storage – to ensure that the highest quality standards are maintained.
Fruity nose with notes of apricot and grapefruit. Crunchy on the palate with a lovely structure supported by fruity and mineral notes, followed by some spicy notes on the finish.
