Probably the most famous rosé internationally. Voted by the famous magazine “Decanter” as the best producer of rosé in the world. The domain covers 53 hectares of which only 40 are planted with vineyards. The domain is ideally located on a slate terrace that plunges down to the Mediterranean Sea near Brégançon. The domain dates from the 18th century and has been owned by the Ott family since 1936.

The Domaines Ott Cuvée Étoile Rosé is the iconic top model of Domaines Ott which is released in very small quantities and using an allocation model. A unique blend with only the best grapes from the three domaines of Domaines Ott; Château de Selle , Clos Mireille and Château Romassan . A signature wine that reflects Provence with the best characteristics of the different terroirs.

The slate terroir of Clos Mireille is reflected in the sublime salty character of this cuvée. The limestone soils of Château de Selle give this wine its finesse. The calcareous sandstone and sandy marl soils at Château Romassan give Étoile structure and strength. This blend with 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre is the most beautiful expression of a prestige rosé from Provence. A very Provencal rosé, clearly Ott in style, but still with its own distinctive character.

25% of the grapes (80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre) mature in spherical ceramic barrels and the remainder in large oak barrels, which accentuates the purity of the fruit and will improve the wine with some aging.

Vintage 2020 from the Domaines Ott Cuvée Étoile Rosé has a crystal clear pink color with mother-of-pearl tones. The first impression on the nose is suggestive of grapefruit and vanilla. It opens with a wonderful lemony and mineral freshness and an explosion of citrus and exotic fruit aromas. The complex ensemble is lifted by a hint of wild peach, raspberry and mimosa. The wine is silky smooth, delicious and spicy on entry into the mouth, after which it becomes fuller, thicker and rounder with notes of mango and passion fruit. The freshness, supported by the spicy character of lime and mandarin peel, leads to a salty finish with a subtle peppery persistence.

Étoile reveals the identity of the three Provencal terroirs of Domaines Ott* while highlighting their elegance, excitement and incredible spirit. » A new vision has emerged, the promise of a moment of pure magic to enjoy again and again.
