In 1896, at the end of a veritable wine tour of France, Marcel Ott, a young Alsatian agricultural engineer, came to a halt in front of lands which finally aroused his inspiration. We are in Provence. The Mediterranean laps just a stone's throw away...
Here, the culture of the vine is a heritage of Antiquity. Alas, shortly before Marcel Ott's discovery, phylloxera wreaked havoc. As a result, the land is cheaper but the vineyard remains to be replanted. The wine has lost much of its soul in the reconstruction of the vineyard. Marcel Ott acquires several estates and undertakes to restore them with the tenacious ambition of creating great wines of Provence from noble grape varieties.
Today, 120 years later, Christian and Jean-François, the Ott cousins, dedicate their lives to love at first sight with their ancestor. In 2004, Domaines Ott* joined Louis Roederer and his attractive federation of great wine artisans.
