BOW (8.50)

Étoile is the apotheosis of the Domaines Ott* terroirs and the most beautiful expression of a prestige rosé from Provence.

The fruit is explosive, honest, bright and true to the Ott signature style yet it also takes its aromatic depth further with its exquisite body and mouthfeel. The subtle signs of ageing integrate smoothly into the intensity of the fruit, with its fresh, crunchy notes, subtle salinity and perfect balance. Richness and power merge and take on a new dimension, united in a newfound intensity, freshness and seductive opulence.

Jancis Robinson (17)

Ambitiously priced new wine from Ott that is apparently a blend of the best rosé from their three properties combining 'the salinity of Clos Mireille, the smooth elegance of Château de Selle and the depth of Château Romassan'. Presumably it is the inclusion of Bandol with the Côtes de Provence wine that mandates the supposedly lowly Vin de France appellation. 80% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 15% aged in ceramic spheres 'to accentuate the purity of the fruit'. In the trademark skittle-shaped Ott bottle, again etched clear glass.
Yes, this really is more interesting on the nose than the Côtes de Provence wines I have just been tasting – with a bit of salinity indeed. I wanted to swallow this well-balanced wine with attractive grip on the end. Smooth as silk and appetising with no excess sweetness. Persistent. I don't think I'd pay £120 for it but it is clearly superior.

Added to favorites.
