Description

Domaines Ott Chateau Romassan Rose is an AOC Bandol. The wine-growing region of Bandol is located at the foot of the village of Le Castellet in the heart of the appellation. Bandol is situated in  the Var department of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region in South Eastern France and rose wines from Bandol are thought to be some of the very best the Provence offer.

Domaine Ott was established in 1912 by Marcel Ott, an Alsacien who dreamed of creating a great wine estate by the Mediterranean. The estate continued to be family-owned until it was bought out by Champagne Louis Roederer in 2004. Domaines Ott consists of three different estates in the Bandol and Cotes de Provence ACs and produces some of the most prestigious wines in the world. However, it is for their Rosé that the estate is arguably most famous for.

Today the estate is represented by Christian and Francois Ott and comprises Chateau de Selle and Clos Mireille in the Côtes de Provence appellation and Chateau Romassan in Bandol. The Ott family acquired Chateau Romassan in 1956. The estate was replanted with noble grape varieties, its small plots were reorganised and levelled to create terraced vineyards. The superb 18th-century building overlooking the vineyard was also completely renovated. Mourvedre is the key grape variety grown here with Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah grown in smaller quantities. There estate consists of 74 hectares with an average vine age of 25 years old. The soils here are chalk, sandstone and marl underlain with gravel. This singular land with its sun-drenched and particularly dry microclimate produces sophisticated and very powerful wines.

The grapes for the Domaines Ott Chateau Romassan Rose are all hand picked and go through a stringent selective sorting, followed by an extremely delicate pressing process. Fermentation is carried out in thermo-regulated vats. The 2020 is a blend of Mourvèdre 60%, Cinsault 20% and Grenache 20%.

Tasting Notes

Domaines Ott Chateau Romassan Rose has a brilliant light peach hue and a lovely aromatic intensity. The nose is fresh and fruity with hints of peach and grapefruit. After aeration, aromas of white flesh fruits start to emerge and are set off by some fine spicy notes. The palate is complex and luscious, buoyed by flavours of citrus and wild peaches. A touch of acidity on the finish gives this big and refined wine a pleasant persistence.

Food Pairing

All Mediterranean cuisine. Roasted vegetables, cured meats, sushi, and gently spiced Asian dishes.
