93 points Wine & Spirits: "The Ott family’s story in Provence starts at the Château de Selle, the first property Marcel Ott acquired in 1912. Usually “not approachable” is a death knell during our rosé panels, but while this quiet wine doesn’t offer the most immediate pleasure, it has an arresting, seductive finish. Spicy, floral nuance plays behind lemon-curd silkiness, and there’s a clean, lasting purity that’s impressive. Enjoy it before dinner, taking your time and profiting from a Provençal timetable (i.e., run late and enjoy it). (Apr 2023)"
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$68 list] Smoothly textured, this wine with its classic dominance of Grenache and Cinsault is rich. It has a lively backdrop to the ripe red berry fruits that are freshened with orange zest. Drink the wine now. Organic. Alcohol 13.5%. (Sep 2023)"
91 points Wine Spectator: "Creamy, with generous dried herb details overlaying a plump core of white nectarine, raspberry and floral notes, bumping up against a wall of minerality and acidic drive. An impressive rosé, with serious structure, power and concentration that unfurl with time. Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now. (2023)"
Producer notes: "58% Grenache, 28% Cinsault, 7% Mourvedre, 7% Syrah. The very pale, pearly pink hue is set off by subtle golden tints. The nose reveals a discreet salinity combined with luscious notes of citrus fruit, vanilla, violets and yellow fruit, all carried by an intense minerality. The wine is fresh and energetic on entry to the palate where it shows a taut structure supported by a lovely backbone of white fruit and citrus peel. Mineral notes come to the fore before giving way to a very persistent finish, bringing both sweetness and salinity. Food Pairing: This pairs well with flambéed or glazed monkfish with vegetables, grilled poultry in a sauce, or fruit desserts."
