The three estates owned and operated by the Ott family represent the pinnacle of Provençal rosé. At the dawn of the 20th century, Marcel Ott left the mountainous countryside of Alsace and fell in love with the sun-soaked Mediterranean shores of the south of France. Chateau de Selle was the first property he acquired in 1912 and remains the family’s flagship wine to this day. The first ‘cult’ rosé, the unique bottle shape imitated by its neighbors, is actually an homage to the clay amphora that Marcel bottled his wine in to keep it cool in the warm climate. Complex flavors of peach, honeydew melon, strawberry, and orange peel are poised on a balance of fresh acidity and silky texture.
