Domaines Ott Red Blend Côtes de Provence les Domaniers de Puits Mouret 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A very high quality range of Provencal and Bandol wines centred firmly around perhaps the finest Rose of the all. Roederer purchased Ott around 5 years ago and it has been a huge success in the UK of late with the feel of a real iconic brand in the making. They also have a second wine range called Les Domaniers. Situated in the heart of the Bandol appellation, Château Romassan became part of the Ott holdings in 1956. All 60 hectares are planted with vines, and were entirely remodelled and replanted over a 30-year period. However, the estate has a long history, comparable with the other Ott estates. The house dates back to the 18th-century, giving a certain grandeur to the surrounding landscape. The Bandol Rouge is 60% Mourvèdre, 15% Cinsault, 15% Grenache and 10% Syrah. The dominance of Mourvedre gives this wine its spicy, animal personality and a generous bouquet of blackcurrant and morello cherry. It is rich in tannin, warm, and highly balanced. Its a wine that makes for remarkable quaffing with beef ribs, spicy dishes and cheese.

The vine needs time. And men that work with wine sometimes devote their entire lives to it. So it was and has remained with Marcel Ott, his children and his grandchildren. The date : 1896. Ott, an Alsatian agricultural engineer with a pioneer spirit, set out to create a wine-producing estate. First attempts : in the region of Cavalaire. It was in 1912, however, at Château de Selle, Le Clos Mireille, and later at Château Romassan, also located in the Var, that this great family adventure was ultimately launched. Long years of patience and effort ! Each estate won over the rocky land. The cultivation principles, inspired by profound respect for nature, are unbending. Fortunately, the land is grateful and gas rewarded this respect by giving birth to outstanding quality wines. As early as 1930, the "Coeur de Grain" rosé made its way over the border. And today, the elegant, prestigious vintages produced by Domaines Ott* can be found in the finest dining establishments the world over. In 2004, with more as 100 years of experience, Domaines Ott* got wedding band with Champagne Louis Roederer Group A true synergy takes place around these craftsmen of high-class wines. Read less

No detectable nose, very soft and subtly fruity wine with some hints of strawberries. Some earthiness (chemical?) on the finish.

Not the perfect rose, but can pass for Domaine Tempier if you squint.

It's soft and round on the palate with good acidity and showing ripe peach and apricot stonefruit with hints of white blossoms. Finishes crisply with lingering flavors.

This is a classic and classy Provençal rosé: dry with light berry fruit and a clean, fresh finish. Perfectly elegant alone, but it fits seamlessly into a light meal of salad and white fish.
