Château Ollieux Romanis Cuvée Classique Corbières Rouge is a blend of Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah from vines planted on hard red clay soil. The wine is fermented and then aged in tank for 12-18 months. Luscious red and black flavours are counterpointed by the drier garrigue notes of bayleaf and rosemary, as well as tobacco leaf and pepper.
We have always been very keen on Corbières, the largest of the appellations in Languedoc-Roussillon, and feel it is hugely underrated in the UK. A family owned vineyard for several generations Château Ollieux Romanis is in Montseret (renowned for honey flavoured with thyme, rosemary and lavender), situated in the heart of the Boutenac region, an area dedicated to the culture of the vine since Roman times.
