Domaines Ott Château Romassan Bandol Rouge 2012

Overview

Domaines Ott was founded in 1912 by Alsatian engineer Marcel Ott. Today, the wineries are owned and managed by Champagne Louis Roederer, producing some of the world’s most prestigious wines. These wines are made at three distinctively different estates: Château Romassan (Bandol), Clos Mireille, and Château de Selle (both Côtes de Provence).

Château Romassan is located in the Bandol appellation and lies at the foot of the village of Le Castellet. The soil is poor, composed of limestone, sandstone, and marine upper cretaceous marls. The Bandol appellation is known for its terraced landscapes built from the hard stone with vines, which are planted into vast terraces with varying exposures. The sea air from the bay of Bandol compensates for the terroir's acidity and low rainfall. The winery is located on 148 acres, which are fully devoted to wine production. Cultivation methods are traditional and the soil is mechanically tilled and young shoots are trained with the greatest care to the plant.

Tasting Notes

This wine has a bright garnet robe with deep purple tints. The nose is delightful and elegant, combining notes of red fruits and spices. The blend of Mourvèdre and Grenache reveals fresh notes of blackcurrant, thyme, and peppery spices. The mouth is supple and harmonious, with aromas of red fruits with a slightly menthol undertone.
