In 1896, after a tour of many of France's vineyards, Marcel Ott, a young graduate in agronomy engineering from Alsace, finally found an estate that he liked in Provence.
Marcel Ott bought several estates and began renovating them with the ambition to create great Provencal wines from noble grape varieties.
120 years later, cousins Jean-François and Christian Ott dedicate their lives to their ancestor’s love for the site. In 2004, Domaines Ott joined Louis Roederer and its fabulous selection of wine craftsmen.
Christian and Jean-François run three estates: Château de Selle, Clos Mireille and Château Romassan. Each property produces elegant rosé wines, as well as red and white wines.
Respectful of nature, each Domaines Ott nurture the soil without chemicals. The organic fertilisers used are all natural. The products used to treat the most common vine diseases are made from a naturally-occurring combination of sulphur and Bordeaux mixture (a blend of copper, slaked lime and black soap), as these are the only treatments allowed in organic farming.
In addition, when the vines become too old, they are replaced. Therefore, the quality of the wines remains constant across the three estates. The estates are now among the most famous, the most quality-driven and the most carefully preserved in all Provence.
Each of the Domaines Ott wines is the result of generations of expertise and the best possible conditions for making wine.
BY.OTT Rosé is blended and bottled in the new Château de Selle cellar, where part of the winery is exclusively devoted to its production.
The entire process is controlled - from the blending to the storage -, ensuring the perfect quality expected of these wines.
Pale and pretty in crystal-clear pink with orange undertones. The nose is delicate and fruity with notes of white peach and apricot mixed with passion fruit and mango. The taste is full, fresh and crisp with echoes of the fruity aroma amplified by citrus zest and sweet spices (cinnamon and cardamom).
BY.OTT is a truly Provençal wine - Friendly, elegant and with conviviality and friendship at its heart.
