There is only one undisputed king of rosé . . . and it is Domaine Ott!
This world famous domaine was founded in Provence in 1912 by Marcel Ott, an agricultural engineer who dreamed of creating a great wine estate in the Mediterranean. Chateau de Selle was planted around an 18th century country house in the Var region and then in the 1950s the Romassan vineyard was planted in the heart of the Bandol region.
This Provencal rosé has the distinctive Bandol strength of character made from Mourvedre, Grenache, and Cinsault in the saignee method and planted on the rocky terraces of limestone, sandstone and marl.
Its pale, ethereal pink colour tinted with gold or orange, releases a bouquet of citrus fruits and white orchard flowers. On the palate, the immediate effect is lively and bright, revealing notes of pink grapefruit, fleshy fruit and, once the wine has had a chance to breathe, hints of fruit tart. The finish is complex and impressively long.
This is the Rolls Royce standard for rosé.
Please note wines from Bandol cannot be released until the 1st April, so our stocks of Domaines Ott will be arriving in early May.
