Domaines Ott* was founded in 1912 by Marcel Ott, an agricultural engineer from Alsace who dreamed of establishing a great wine estate near the Mediterranean. He moved to Cavalaire in 1896 and founded Château de Selle in 1912, followed by Clos Mireille in 1935 and then Château Romassan in 1956. These wines are made at the distinctively different estates in the Bandol and Côtes de Provence appellations.
Domaines Ott* was managed by Marcel’s descendants until 2004 when the Estates were purchased by Champagne Louis Roederer to add to their impressive portfolio of iconic Domaines. Several of the Ott* family members remain involved in production.
Domaines Ott* has been farmed organically from the beginning. Stringent cultivation techniques are practiced using natural fertilizers and manual debudding for restrictive volume yields. The grapes are hand picked, followed by strict and selective sorting on tables and an extremely delicate pressing process of whole bunches with a super short maceration to produce the beautiful light colour. Slow fermentation takes place in thermo-regulated vats then ageing in oak casks. Bottling is done the following spring. These are just some of the reasons why this wine has acquired the reputation of being one of the ‘finest vintage rosés in the world’.
This very ancient land is characterised by a combination of schists and clays, and by an absence of limestone. The vineyard’s proximity to the sea explains the inimitable character of the wines produced at Clos Mireille. The microclimate and sea spray create the ideal conditions for the production of extremely rare wines. The grapes are all hand picked and go through a stringent selective sorting, followed by an extremely delicate pressing process. Fermentation is done in thermo-regulated vats.
