Les Domaniers Cotes de Provence Rose 2010 is a fresh and balanced rosé that captures the spirit of the Cote d'Azur with it exotic fruit and white peach flavors. Built upon Domaines Ott's winemaking expertise, this wine is to be paired with Provencal cuisine such as salad nicoise, grilled lamb, sea bass and seasonal vegetables.
60% Grenache, 35% Cinsault, 5% Syrah
"Pale orange. Bright, mineral-accented aromas of strawberry and orange zest, with a hint of white flowers. Dry and precise, showing very good clarity to its tangy red fruit and bitter citrus flavors. Shows good bite on the energetic finish, leaving behind a cherry note."
International Wine Cellar
"A rich, juicy style, offering generously spiced flavors of melon, apricot and wild plum. Fresh and minerally on the finish. Drink now."
Domaines D'Ott is one of my favorite wines from Provence and the rose is superb. This, however, was a Selection and I found it disappointing vs. my expectations. That being said, it's crisp, light with wonderful flavors and can be paired with many summer dishes or enjoyed on its own. Worth trying.
