At the foot of Le Castellet there is a large 18th century Provençal house and a vineyard carved out one of the great families of the Provencal viniculture, the Ott Family. Château Romassan produces wonderful AOC (guarantee of origin) wines and it also happens to be one of the most beautiful domains in the region— also one of the biggest with its 70 hectares in production.
Château Romassan offers a tasting of all the wines of Domaines Ott, including the Cœur de Grain du Château de la Selle and the Blanc de Blancs Clos Mireille. Don’t forget to try another house specialty: vieux marc de rosé. It’s from the wine marc (skins, pips and stalks that remain in the press) issued from the grapes used for the Cœur de Grain du Château de la Selle. Recovered in the press, this material will ferment before being distilled to give a delicate eau-de-vie. The latter then spends ten years in oak barrels, where it takes its beautiful amber colour and final aroma.
The bottle of Domaines Ott is unique. Rene Ott, Marcel’s son, who was inspired by the famous Roman amphorae, conceived it in 1930; it was one way to pay tribute to Caesar’s compatriots, the fathers of the vineyards of Provence.
