mystery Provencal brandy--can you help?

drdawn | Dec 13, 2008 06:38 PM

Took my aunt to a Provencal restaurant in Paris and had a wonderful desert based on a rum baba using a Provencal brandy. I asked the waiter the name of the brandy, and, having a serious translation problem, managed to ask him to show me the bottle of the brandy. He produced a bottle and I dutifully wrote it down. It was this.... Domaines Ott Chateau de Selle vieux marc de rose.....

Trying to find it on the internet and i keep getting bottles of rose! The glass was dark so I couldn't see the actual liquid inside. Did we get lost in translation? Was the waiter making a cruel joke? In any case if anyone who knows about these things can make a suggestion as to what this otherwise very good restaurant may have served me it would be much appreciated. I would like to buy a bottle for my aunt for Christmas.

I can't describe the taste other than delicious though I can say it was closer to a deep golden color as opposed to a darker brown....
