Pass the Rosé! It’s time for your Luxury Summer holiday in France
You’ll probably agree that there’s nothing better than sipping a cold glass of Domaines Ott Rosé on La Folie Douce’s terrace, after a bluebird day skiing Val d’Isère, before you head back to your luxury catered chalet where a delightful dinner awaits prepared by your own private chef. Or is there? Our newest hideout, Clos Mireille, sees two unique and iconic brands coming together in Provence and has to be the best place to savour a beautiful glass or two whilst on your luxury summer holiday.
If you don’t know the history of Domaines Ott wine, we’ll take you back to 1896 where Marcel Ott fell in love with Provence, a very easy thing to do. Whilst the area had a long legacy of wine production, it wasn’t until 1930 that Marcel discovered, and fell in love with, stunning Clos Mireille. Built by Benedictine monks in the 18th Century and over looking the sea at La Londe, the vineyard has a perfect microclimate where the vines are cooled by the sea spray and warmed by the dry hillside air, producing exceptional grapes which burst with flavour; giving the wine its uniqueness. In 2004, Domaines Ott joined prestigious Louis Roederer and today, Jean-François Ott is still devoted to this beautiful estate and the love of Clos Mireille by his ancestors.
The wine itself has to be the most iconic Provence Rosé you’re set to come across and is served in luxury venues across the world. With Grenache being the majority grape and giving it the full body texture, Cinsault and Syrah grapes bring softness and fruity roundness respectively. It’s instantly recognisable by its very pale pink colour with tints of gold, orange and even vermilion; reflecting those iconic Provence sunsets. Fresh fruits, citrus aromas and a mineral core make this fabulous and easy drinking rosé the perfect match for those long hazy summer days.
