Glistening orange-pink. Vibrant, mineral-accented cherry, peach, and honeydew scents, along with orange pith and floral nuances. Stains the palate with juicy red berry, citrus fruit and lavender flavors that show very good depth as well as liveliness. Shows firm tension and dusty mineral character on the long, penetrating finish, which leaves melon and blood orange notes behind.

2020 was another year characterised by particularly mild annual temperatures. The average 800 mm of rainfall was concentrated mainly from October to March. After a very mild winter, budburst was observed in the first fortnight of March. The mild weather at the end of May ensured that the flowering went off perfectly. The emergence of the clusters was uniform in all the vineyards. June brought long hot days. Due to the healthy conditions, we decided to stop our natural treatments, as well as the ploughing work, to prevent any stress to the vines, which continued along their life cycle, accompanied by hot summer days. We started harvesting on Wednesday 12 August to ensure that the 2020 vintage would have perfect balance and freshness. The 2020 vintage reveals a bright, crystalclear salmon hue and an assertive character. The rich, fresh and fruity nose expresses aromas of melon and peach interspersed with subtle hints of strawberry. On entry, the wine is fresh and invigorating, buoyed by notes of lemon peel and zesty exotic fruit and accompanied by a full-bodied saline palate. The finish, crunchy like summer fruit, lingers with lovely light notes leaving an impression of succulence.Winemaker's notes (Apr 2021)
Marcel Ott, an Alsatian by birth, settled in Provence in the late 19th Century and founded the famous estate that bears his family name. The (in)famous bottle was created by René Ott in 1930 and, today, the estates are run by cousins Christian and Jean-François Ott although ownership passed to Louis Roederer in 2004. More, perhaps, than any other brand the pale delicate pink of Domaine Ott has come to define Provence rosé.
