Domaines Ott Château de Selle Rosé 2019
|Region||France, Provence, Côtes de Provence|
Brilliant peach skin color. A highly perfumed, mineral-accented bouquet evokes fresh red berries, pit fruits and kumquat. A sexy floral note emerges with air. Silky and penetrating on the palate, offering intense redcurrant, strawberry, nectarine and blood orange flavors that slowly deepen through the mid-palate. Delivers solid punch but comes off lithe, showing excellent clarity and floral notes on the impressively long, seamless finish.
Bringing out freshness as well as the richness of the Ott style, this wine is generous, full of red fruits while also having an attractive, lip-smacking mineral acidity. Drink now.
The beauty of the Ott rosés is that they don't wallop you with confected aromas, remaining cool and elegant. The 2019 Cotes de Provence Rose Chateau de Selle-a blend of 56% Grenache, 25% Cinsault, 11% Syrah and 8% Mourvèdre-offers up scents of wet stones, grapefruit, lime and hints of wild strawberries. It's medium-bodied, with a fine line of acidity, a delicately silky texture and a lingering, refreshing finish.
