Description

The 2016 Château Ollieux Romanis Corbières comes across as classic Corbières; it’s a full-bodied,
traditional blend of 40% Carignan, 30% Grenache, and 30% Syrah from an outstanding vintage throughout the South of France. Château Ollieux Romanis occupies a privileged site in Boutenac, at the heart of Corbières and France’s fabled Languedoc. The present owners, the Bories family, settled on the property in the mid 19th century and subsequently constructed the domain’s existing winery in 1896 from stones quarried on the property. The domain’s privileged vineyards run along the south-facing exposures of the sheltered Roquestière hillsides. For nearly a decade Pierre Bories has con-trolled the direction at Château Ollieux Romanis and converted almost his entire property to organic viticulture. Moreover, all of the grapes at Château Ollieux Romanis are harvested by hand and the resulting musts are fermented and aged entirely in modern temperature-controlled concrete tanks to ensure freshness and provide the most authentic expression to consumers of Corbières.

TASTING NOTES

What one smells and tastes in this classic Corbières is a profound, deeply colored wine that is uniformly ripe, ample and packed with flavour. Upon first opening, black currant and raspberry fruit, hints of wild herbs, and plenty of healthy tannins greet the nose and palate.
