About the Wine

A taste of the superb bang for buck that can be found when fishing around in France’s deepest South: Corbières blanc, a blend of Roussanne and Marsanne, the two local white grapes of the region.

The heat of this Southerly location really translates into the wine, and the grapes can handle it. To start the colour is intensely golden, and it follows the fruit character steers towards full ripeness; apricot, papaya... even banana. Big recommendation if you’re looking for a white that doesn’t get lost amongst more powerful flavours on the plate, with change from £15.

About Ollieux Romanis

Ollieux Romanis is a magnificent property with a huge winery nestling at the centre of its vines. The winery and wine cellar were built in 1896; these buildings were built from stone quarried from within the property and they still stand proud today. The first parcel of Carignan was planted in 1896, and it is still used for production of grapes today. The Carignan grape variety has become the leitmotif of the Bories family - Pierre's mother, Jacqueline, who was the winemaker in the 1970's resisted all the hype that grew up in the 1970's around the Syrah grape, and highlighted the Carignan grape in her wines. It is still the case for Pierre and his team.

Affectionately known a 'Tractor Wine' amongst our regulars, here we have an accessible, nicely balanced Corbières red that avoids being scorched and overdone in favour of ripe, toothsome red and black fruit. No oak, but still rich and bold. Find out more.
