BY.OTT is blended and bottled in the new Château de Selle cellar, where part of the winery is exclusively devoted to its production. The entire process is controlled – from the blending to the storage -, ensuring the perfect quality expected of these wines. BY.OTT is an elegant extension to the Domaines Ott* range, and a truly Provençal wine with conviviality and friendship at its heart.
Pale and pretty in crystal-clear pink with orange undertones. The nose is delicate and fruity with notes of white peach and apricot mixed with passion fruit and mango. The taste is full, fresh and crisp with echoes of the fruity aroma amplified by citrus zest and sweet spices (cinnamon and cardamom). Blend: 65% Grenache, 8% Syrah/Shiraz, 25% Cinsault. Grapes are 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.
What proud and skilled vintner has never dreamed of providing their wine with the sanctum of an exclusive, unique and instantly recognisable bottle? In 1930, René Ott did exactly that. He, who never stopped loving Provence, its hills and shorelines punctuated by Cypresses and uninterrupted rows of vines, created a bottle with slender curves inspired by the grace of the landscape.
Today, it is still the signature of Domaines Ott* and it evokes the memory of an elegant amphora that kept the wine cool many centuries ago.
