GRAPE VARIETAL(S)
Grenache
70% Gruh-NASH
Grenache is widely planted throughout the world but some of the best expressions come from the southern Rhone, and in Spain’s Priorat. Grenache has small berries with thick grape skins resulting in dark, tannic wine in its youth combined with an almost ripe sweetness and elevated alcohol. Often part of a blend, Grenache offers a lot of fruit, spice, with floral and herbal notes.
Cinsault
20% Sen-SO
Cinsaut is an underrated grape variety from Southern France because its proclivity for high yields. However, when yields are restricted, it can make fruit forward aromatic wines best suited for blends and/or fresh, perfumed and fruity rosé wines.
Syrah
10% See-RA
Syrah is widely planted throughout the world, but that was not so until the late twentieth century when Syrah was principally grown in the Rhone Valley and, as Shiraz, in Australia. Stylistically, the Palate Character of Syrah can vary depending on ripeness from a rich Round & Fleshy, Tone & Backbone, to a Powerful & Extracted. The flavors and aromas can also vary with a dark, sometimes sweet, fruit character, varying amount of spice, floral, and earth, and smoke, and meaty aromas and flavors.

Domaines Ott

PRovence, france

Domaines Ott was founded in 1896 by Marcel Ott just after the region had been devastated by phylloxera, a blight that provided opportunity as well as an incredible amount of work replanting vineyards. 

Domaines Ott's Vineyard and SeaDomaines Ott's Vineyard and Sea

Ott is now run by Christian and Francois Ott and consists of three estates: Château de Selles, Clos Mireille, and Château Romassan. The family organically farms these mostly old vines on often terraced vineyards that help to optimize drainage and eliminate runoff. 

These wines, especially the rosé, are among the finest in Provence and are characterized by their elegant amphora-shaped bottles,a tribute to the large antique winemaking vessels historically used to make wine at the estate.
