Rarely does a rosé jump out of the glass and demand attention. But this one seems to have packaged up a Mediterranean breeze along with the scents of strawberries and garrigue, unleashing it with every sip. My nine-year-old, doing her own independent appraising, said, “It smells warm—not like the wine is warm, but like it comes from a warm place.” That place is inland from the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, 345 acres of stony soils and limestone terraces, a remote location Marcel Ott purchased in 1912. Today, cousins Christian and Jean-François Ott tend the vines, working with the backing of parent company Louis Roederer, which funded the building of a new winery at the estate in 2017, designed by Carl Fredrik Svenstedt. All those elements came together in a rosé that channels the place it’s grown in an elegant and understated way, yet with a persistence that speaks to its structure and strength. Impressive now, this will be even better with a year or two in bottle.

It's a more rounded, textured rosé compared to the more reductive Clos Mireille and has wonderful strawberry and peach fruit as well as a touch of spice and rose petals. Rich, medium-bodied, and layered on the palate, this is another thrilling, classy rosé that does everything right. Drink it over the coming 6-12 months.

Bringing out freshness as well as the richness of the Ott style, this wine is generous, full of red fruits while also having an attractive, lip-smacking mineral acidity. Drink now. ROGER VOSS

On the palate high acidity keeps things fresh, with sweet strawberry juice flavours and a hint of tart red cherry adding livliness. A little bit of lemon creaminess comes in at the end, nicely balancing the overall taste. Perfect for a hot summer's day, it's almost like a white wine with soft zesty, strawberry edges.

The beauty of the Ott rosés is that they don't wallop you with confected aromas, remaining cool and elegant.

The 2019 Cotes de Provence Rose Chateau de Selle—a blend of 56% Grenache, 25% Cinsault, 11% Syrah and 8% Mourvèdre—offers up scents of wet stones, grapefruit, lime and hints of wild strawberries. It's medium-bodied, with a fine line of acidity, a delicately silky texture and a lingering, refreshing finish. - JC
