2019 Domaines Ott Chateau Romassan Rosé Bandol
Ott Rose is benchmark for the style. Made from the Bandol grape trio of Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Grenache. Pale pink colour with flecks of orange and gold. The nose boasts citrus fruits and white orchard flowers. The palate is bright and lively, with notes of fleshy fruit and pink grapefruit. The finish is long and complex.
" I wish that people, many of whom I suspect have never even tried them, could look past the fact that while the wines made by this impeccably run, no-expense-spared domaine have a reputation for being the rosés of choice in swanky summer locales, they're the real deal. That's not just in the pink wine category. Even if this one is relatively expensive for the Bandol category it's actually a compelling value as world-class wines go." Vinous
