Ollieux Romanis Corbières Boutenac "Cuvée Prestige" '15

Located in Boutenac, just south of the village of Corbières in the Languedoc region, Ollieux Romanis is now one of the largest privately owned wineries in Corbières, spanning 130 hectares.  In an area known for negociants, this is something to point out; while this is a large portion of land, the direct oversight leads to style and unmistakeable character.  The Château's history dates all the way back to Roman Times where the land was originally farmed for grains, olives and mutton.  It wasn't until the 11th Century that vines were planted, largely in part to the conversion to a monastery, where tending to the vine was part of the monks’ daily religious ritual, for production of the holy sacrament.  Today it is owned and maintained by the Bories family, who settled at Les Ollieux some 200 years ago.  

Corbières is full of unique aspects including Mediterranean red clay, sandstone, and puddingstone for soil types. Along with the classic varietals known to the area, such Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache Noir, Syrah, Marsanne, and Roussanne, the Bories also cultivate Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, Merlot, and Mourvèdre; an area full of exploration and experimentation, a unique place for France.  The "Cuvée Prestige" rouge is made of Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah.  This is a no brainer for any Rhône varietal fan.
