Clos Mireille Blanc 2020
Clos Mireille is most famous for its rosé (one of our bestsellers every year), but don’t overlook the rare and extremely elegant white from this ancient terroir.
The vineyards at Clos Mireille are so close to the seashore that the ocean spray seems to infuse this blend of Sémillon and Rolle (the local name for Vermentino). Sémillon – known for the richness it adds to the white wines of Bordeaux and the sweet wines of Sauternes – thrives in these saline conditions. The richness is further boosted by maturation in large oak casks, which adds a glowing patina to the wine, as well as creaminess and spice. Expect notes of brioche, bay leaf, sage, Scotch broom, acacia honey, jasmine tea, creamy lemon posset, toasted hazelnuts, melon, cardamom, pencil shavings and sea breezes. This sun-kissed character of this silky textured wine tastes like the first day of the summer holidays. Serve with lashings of sunshine, seafood, grilled fish or barbequed halloumi and vegetable kebabs.
Domaines Ott has been the wine of the Riviera for decades and in 2004 came under the stewardship of the Rouzauds – one of the wine world’s most powerful families and owners of Champagne Louis Roederer, Champagne Deutz, Ramos Pinto Port, Maison Delas in the Rhône and Bordeaux’s iconic Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande. Domaines Ott was founded in 1912, in the aftermath of phylloxera, by an agricultural engineer from Alsace called Marchel Ott. It comprises three estates: Chateau de Selle (Marcel Ott’s first estate in Taradeau), Clos Mireille (an old property on the coast overlooking La Londe-les-Maures that creates a legendary rosé that has become a big Harvey Nichols favourite) and Château Romassan (terraced vineyards in Bandol acquired in 1956 and then completely renovated). This stellar winery delivers sophisticated holiday vibes whenever you pull the cork.
