Domaines Ott Clos Mireille Blanc de Blancs 2013
The 2013 Clos Mireille Blanc de Blancs is a lovely pale yellow color with delicate silvery green glints. The expressive and fruity nose reveals an aromatic palette of broom, dried almonds, and yellow melon. The ample and beautifully round mouth is fresh and acidy with notes of peaches and white plums, lemon zest, and lime blossom. A rich and delicious finish with a silky and crisp texture.
Clos Mireille is an ancient that is characterized by a combination of schists and clays, and by an absence of limestone. The vineyard's proximity to the sea explains the inimitable character of the wines produced at Clos Mireille. The microclimate and sea spray create the ideal conditions for the production of extremely rare wines. Clos Mireille has 50 hectares of planted vineyards. The parcels used in the white wine slope down as far as the sea. The parcels are leveled into espaliers to enable even tilling and planting. The vines are pruned and trained using the double cordon method.
