Here’s a perfect wine for your Thanksgiving table. It’s serious as well as delicious, with aromas and flavors of peaches, apples, pears and pomegranate with hints of dusty minerals, dried herbs and flowers. It’s dry and light-bodied with a round mouth feel tempered with zesty acidity. So, it has the fruit to go with the cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes and the crispness and dryness to complement turkey and savory stuffing.

Domaines Ott is a prestigious wine estate with three wineries in different areas of the Provence region of southeastern France. You may have seen their uniquely shaped bottles with the higher price tag, such as the $40 Bandol rosé recommended by the Wine Panel in June. The Les Domaniers wines are sourced within the Côtes de Provence region rather than Ott’s estate vineyards; therefore the price is a bit more affordable.
