Domaines Ott* was founded in 1912 by Marcel Ott, an agricultural engineer from Alsace who dreamed of establishing a great wine estate near the Mediterranean. Today, the wineries are owned and managed by Champagne Louis Roederer and produce some of the world’s most prestigious wines, but particularly rosé wines, made at distinctively different estates in Bandol and Côtes de Provence appellations. Regarded as the “gold standard of rosé” by The Wall Street Journal, in 2016 Domaines Ott* has released a new cuvée, By. Ott.

This very ancient land is characterised by a combination of schists and clays, and by an absence of limestone. Produced from vineyards neighbouring their famous Grand Crus, By. Ott is a blend from the Clos Mireille and Château de Selle Estates. Clos Mireille´s proximity to the sea and microclimate offer freshness while Château de Selle, located on limestone hillsides, gives plenty of fruit and texture to the wine.

Made in Château de Selle’s completely new cellar, part of the winery is exclusively dedicated to making By. Ott. The grapes are hand picked, followed by strict and selective sorting on tables and an extremely delicate pressing process of whole bunches with a super short maceration to produce the beautiful light colour. Slow fermentation takes place in thermo-regulated vats.

Once again, this vintage suffered from very high temperatures and not enough rain. Flowering started in late May in perfect conditions as the emergence of the first bunches was to prove. But, the hot weather, not dissimilar to the heatwave of 2003, immediately set in. The condition of the grapes indicated that the harvest would be early, and it eventually started on 14 August. The harvest volume was down by about 20%, but the grapes were very homogeneous and of impeccable quality. The first tastings indicated that the wines would be very well balanced. The heat persisted, but careful winemaking allowed the wines to preserve their freshness and fruit.
