Wine Spectator 91 Points May 27, 2024, Kristen Bieler

Shows impressive power, offering red currant and juicy melon flavors powered by mouthwatering acidity and mineral energy. Dried rose petal and lavender accents add intrigue to the polished, silky palate, with the density and length making for a standout rosé. Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah. Drink now through 2028.


Domaines Ott was founded in 1896 by Alsatian engineer Marcel Ott. Today, the wineries are owned and managed by Champagne Louis Roederer, producing some of the world’s most prestigious wines. These wines are made at three distinctively different estates: Château Romassan (Bandol), Clos Mireille and Château de Selle (both Côtes de Provence).

Clos Mireille is the second estate acquired by the Ott family in 1936. Clos Mireille is in an exceptional location on the Mediterranean coast, in La Londe les Maures, where the average vine age is 17 years. This is idyllic Provence. Its ancient soil, a mixture of schist and limestone-free clay, benefits from a microclimate permeated by sea spray, which explains the inimitable character of the wines produced from the 124 acres at Clos Mireille.

Domaines Ott wines are certified organic starting with the 2022 vintage. 


The grapes are all hand-picked, followed by strict and selective sorting. Extremely delicate pressing extracts the best of the grapes and color; there is short skin contact in the press. Slow fermentation takes place followed by aging in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats. Bottling is done the following spring.

Tasting Notes

Seductive pale pink hue tinged with sandy gold. The nose is exquisitely delicate with notes of yellow fruit and acacia blossom. On the palate, the wine is invigorating, vivacious, with lingering aromas of yellow fruit delicately interwoven with the scent of melon. The soft, slightly spicy finish reveals intense notes of candied lemon peel.

Harvest Notes

The 2023 harvest took place in three phases. During the dormant season, between October and March, there was not enough water to replenish the vines. The arrival of heavy rains in May and June was a gift from nature as the vineyards were flowering. July brought a sharp rise in temperatures, before a brief period of cool weather in early August. This brief respite was then followed by an unprecedented heatwave for this time of year. On August 16th, the teams were ready and waiting to start harvesting in the vineyards of Château de Selle and Clos Mireille. The harvest had to be carried out quickly and well to preserve the freshness of the grapes. The 2023 harvest was completed on September 28th at Château Romassan.
