2010 Château Romassin, Domaines Ott, Bandol rouge

The wines of the Bandol AOC are robust proof that the wines of Provence are grown-up, serious affairs. Too often associated with frivolous, holiday, beach-side cocktail fodder, the reds, whites and rosés of Bandol are anything but. This Bandol from Monsieur Ott, is one of my favourites, and I have been enjoying his wines for twenty years... his rosés are legendary.

2010 Château Romassin, Bandol

Superbly balanced, fresh and mineral with a nice finish. Only 12.5% ABV, thanks to that perfect micro-climate cooled by salty sea breezes. It is peppery, savoury, and reminiscent of grilled lamb chops smothered in herbs de Provence and olive oil. Notes of lavender, smoky, dusty old lace yet bright and personable.
