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

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.
