Domaine Ott, Clos Mireille, Grenache Blend, Provence, France, 2013

 

 MireilleRose2012 The terroir
The soil is very old and characterized by a combination of shale and clay, and by an absence of limestone. The long sea-facing front is undoubtedly responsible for the unique character of Clos Mireille’s output. The microclimate and sea spray provide favourable conditions for the production of exceptional wines.Tasting notes
Pale pink robe with saffrony gold highlights. The powerful, elegant nose combines white fruits and wild strawberry, alongside citrus zest with light cardamom notes.
Soft, firm structure in the mouth, balanced by a crispiness with fruity notes and a touch of grapefruit.
The smooth, suave finish expresses the complexity of Clos Mireille, as well as its coastal location.

Grape varieties
Grenache 70% + Cinsault 20% + Syrah 10%
