Probably the most famous rosé internationally. Voted by the famous magazine “Decanter” as the best producer of rosé in the world. The domain comprises 53ha of which only 40 are planted with vineyards. The property is ideally located on a slate terrace that plunges down to the Mediterranean Sea near Brégançon. The domain dates back to the 18th century and has been owned by the Ott family since 1936. The soil is very old and characterized by a combination of slate and clay. The elongated front of the vineyard has sea views and this is without doubt the reason for the uniqueness of the Clos Mireille's. The microclimate and sea breezes (and misting of the sea surf) provide favorable and unique conditions for the production of exceptional wines.

The Clos Mireille rose is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Cinsault and 10% Syrah. The grapes are hand-picked and rigorously selected upon entering the cellars. Then a slow fermentation follows. The wine matures for at least 8 months in oak barrels, which makes it full, somewhat spicy and stylish in taste. Any comparison, with any wine, is flawed, Montaigne already knew that.

The wine is light pink in color. In the nose very nice notes of citrus fruits, white fruit and strawberry and hints of licorice. When the wine has been rolled for a while, fragrant white flowers also develop in the nose. In the mouth there is a very good balance between freshness and liveliness and the wine has a firm structure with nuts and a hint of bitterness of grapefruit. Can be drunk now, but can also be stored for five years without any problems, which makes the Ott wines so unique. This rosé version and the Bandol Coeur de Grain are the scarcest of all the rosé versions that Domaine Ott puts on the market. Unprecedentedly refined. The Clos Mireille is also seen as the mother of the Provence Roses and its correct roses that, given the barrique upbringing, should not be drunk too young and become even more beautiful after a few years.
