2014 OTT ROSES & BLANC

Today, the Ott family continues to make red, white and rosé wines from three estates—Château de Selle, Clos Mireille, and Château Romassan. The also produce a rosé from fruit which they purchase and label it as Les Domaniers Rosé. Each wine is distinctive and shows the wonderful character of Provence.

2014 SANCERRES

The vintage of 2014 presented many challenges for grape growers in Sancerre. The season got off to a good start with a favorable flowering season, but the weather turned cool in July and August with overcast conditions and plenty of rain. Growers needed to spend extra time in their vineyards removing and preventing rot. Luckily September offered Indian summer-like conditions with blue skies and warm temperatures all day and cold nights. This allowed those who tended their vines carefully to get fully ripe fruit. The cool nights yielded wines with firm acidity and lots of citrus flavors.
