This famous rose is arguably responsible for putting rose on the map.
The story started in 1896 when Marcel Ott searched throughout France for a spot to make his rose wine. Ott decided upon Provence in the beautiful south of France. By 1912, Ott was able to purchase his first vineyard called Chateau de Selle. It was in the 1930s that the distinctive bottle was designed by Ott's son. The bottle was modeled after a clay amphorae used to store wine in ancient times. Everyone that loves Ott, loves the bottle too! Many others followed in Ott's footsteps leading to the creation of the Cotes de Provence appellation.
Domaines Ott describes the blend of grapes used in the Chateau de Selle as Cabernet Sauvignon which lends the wines a complexity, elegance and magnificent strength, Grenache which gives them a full-bodied texture, Cinsault which adds a delicately rounded touch, while Syrah gives the blends their rich color.
Cotes de Provence
This famous winery has a storied and
star-studded past and present.
Miraval sits at the foot of Via Aurelia - an extensive route built to facilitate the expansion of Rome in the 3rd century BC. In the 14th century, it was home to members of the French Court. In 1970, the jazz-pianist and composer Jacques Louissier became the owner and turned it into a recording studio where Pink Floyd, Sting, Sade and other musicians recorded their music. As we all know, today's famous owners are
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
Together with one of the leading French wine producing families, the Perrin family,
Miraval produces high quality wines without herbicides, pesticides and chemicals. This rose is also in a bottle with a very beautifully distinctive shape.
