2015 Domaine Ott Ch Romassan Bandol Rosé

Decanter's Best Rosé for Food - Half Bottles; Half Off
July 18, 2017

 

Decanter Cover

Decanter magazine tasted rosés to drink with food and found the "Best Thirty Rosés to Dine For." in their current issue. Their not surprising pick as number one was Domaine Ott's luxury cuvee Ch Romassan Cœur de Grain Bandol Rosé.

But, as they wrote in their article "the best [rosés] will gain complexity over two or three years. In this tasting, the rosés that impressed were the ones that had retained their freshness from the previous vintage." The wine they recommend to drink now is not the current 2016 Domaine Ott , but last year's 2015.

Nobody told our local importer this. He had to make room for the 2016s that are now arriving by selling off his 2015 half bottles at a discount,  which is how we can offer these half bottles at half their original price. There aren't a lot.

 

The tasting notes below are verbatim from Decanter.

 

2015 Domaine Ott Ch Romassan Cœur de Grain Bandol Rosé "Enticingly golden, pink-tinged, Mourvedre-based rose that manages to combine freshness with depth 

and complexity. Savoury, a lovely touch of white peach balancing a gorgeous creamy texture. All you could want from a rosé. Drink with: carpaccio, beef tartare, lobster spaghetti. Drink 2017-2019  Alc 13%"
