De Selle was Marcel Ott’s first estate, an imposingly rocky slope of gypsum, red clay, dolomite, gravel and sandstone in Taradeau that he purchased in 1912. The rosé it produced in 2018—a blend of grenache with cinsault, syrah and mourvèdre—is more open than the Clos Mireille: De Selle is immediately inviting in its fresh, floral scents of melon and rosemary. The urge to drink it becomes only more immediate when the tangy wine hits the palate, delivering seashell minerality like a jolt of electricity. Bright and energetic, it would make short work of a dozen oysters.

Intense aromas of strawberry, nectarine, honeydew melon and orange zest, with a bright mineral overtone that builds with air. Shows impressive clarity and tension on the palate, offering juicy pit fruit and red berry flavors that are braced by a bitter suggestion of blood orange. Finishes impressively long and silky, with a strong mineral quality and a hint of lavender. -- Josh Raynolds

Almost more white or straw colored than rosé, the 2018 Cotes de Provence Rose Chateau de Selle is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Crushed stone accents peach, melon and lime on the nose, while the palate is light to medium-bodied, silky and long, finishing with a tactile—almost chalky—sensation. Expect it to drink well through the end of 2020. - JC
