Domaines Ott Chateau de Selle Cotes de Provence Rose 2017 1.5L Rated 93W&S
- Calculated at Checkout
The Chateau de Selle sits on a limestone slope in the forested inland reaches of Provence. The soil is nearly half rock and the sun is intense, an imposing landscape for cultivating anything, yet this rose is one of the most elegant we tasted from the 2017 vintage. The concentration of the fruit comes through in the wine's luxurious satin texture, while the flavors remain restrained - hints of melon, lemon and red cherry highlighting its earthy savor. It's very pale, but don't let the hue fool you: It's structured and mineral, a firm rose that wouldn't be out of place at Le Bernardin.
Wine Tasting Notes
Pale pink with golden tints. The nose opens with intense notes of citrus which evolve towards more floral and spicy aromas. The fresh and smooth palate displays a range of citrus notes combined with a touch of minerality which lingers on the soft and very persistent finish.
