Bandol, a picturesque Mediterranean hamlet, is home to some of the world's greatest rosé, it's a point of pride for the region. Domaines Ott is a producer that spares no expense and chases quality with relentless abandon. It shows in their wines and this stunning, brilliant wine shows an array of citrus and fruit characteristics while presenting depth and complexity that will leave your palate breathless. A true taste-per-dollar champion!
The pale, peachy-colored 2020 Bandol Rose Chateau Romassan is mainly Mourvèdre, with smaller proportions of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah. Scents of crushed stone accent notes of peach, strawberry and lime on the nose, while the medium-bodied palate is silky in texture, streamlined in shape and extremely long on the finish. It can be drunk now or over the next few years.
This structured, textured wine offers perfumes and concentrated fruits. Spice and rich red-currant flavors dominate the crisp wine. With its acidity and developing texture, this wine will probably be best from 2022.
Limpid orange. Powerful, mineral-accented citrus pith, red berry and succulent floral and herb scents, along with a spicy nuance. Chewy and sharply focused in the mouth, offering concentrated strawberry, bitter cherry, blood orange, honeysuckle and smoky mineral qualities and a deeper peach pit flourish. Chewy and densely packed yet lively as well, the mineral and floral notes carrying through a very long, precise finish.
