I recently glanced at an article about a wine merchant serving the super-rich on their super-yachts, and noticed that Domaines Ott was the rosé producer in high demand. That makes perfect sense: their rosé sells at ultra-high prices — apparently a prerequisite for inclusion on the lists — but in this case largely justified by a superlative wine. This Grenache blend, supplemented by Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvèdre, is extremely pale, with a blush of salmon-pink colour. The nose is subtle, with notes of dried herbs, perfumed red apples, strawberries and lemon zest. Bone-dry, with firm acidity, the wine is slim, elegant and almost austere, with a pleasing apple-skin bitterness. If you are part of the super-rich, or just want to act like you are for an evening, then you must try this wine. • Tasted 2017-08-05 • LCBO id#74617 • Find it at your nearest LCBOAUTHENTIC WINE & SPIRITS MERCHANTS (Agent)
