2022 Domaines Ott Château Romassan Bandol Coeur de Grain Rose Magnum
Probably the most famous rosé internationally. Named the best producer of rosé in the world by the famous magazine "Decanter". The domain covers 53ha of which only 40 are planted with vineyards. The domain is ideally located on a slate terrace that plunges down to the Mediterranean near Brégançon. The domain dates back to the 18th century and has been owned by the Ott family since 1936.
Château Romassan is located near the village of Le Castellet. The château is dominated by the picturesque chapel that has watched over the domain in Bandol for almost three centuries. Since 1956, Château Romassan wines have benefited from the enthusiasm and obsession for perfect work of the Ott family. People work here without using poison or fertilizer.
The grapes are hand-picked and rigorously selected upon entry to the cellars. Then follows a slow fermentation. The wine matures for at least 8 months in oak barrels and that makes it full, somewhat spicy and stylish in taste. Any comparison, with any wine whatsoever, is flawed, Montaigne already knew that.
The wine is light pink in color. In the nose very nice notes of citrus fruits, as well as very fresh hints of licorice. If the wine has been rolled a bit, fragrant white flowers also develop in the nose. In the mouth there is a very good balance between freshness and liveliness. Can be drunk now but can also be stored for five years without any problems and that makes the Ott wines so unique. This rosé version is the scarcity of all rosé versions that Domaine Ott markets. Incredibly refined.
