The vines are planted on red clay soil and face south east on a sheltered hillside. Carignan is king here and this particular rose is a blend of hand-harvested Carignan with a little Syrah and Grenache. Spicy with a savoury edge, this is ideal with richly flavoured rustic dishes.
Notes on the producer
The 60-hectare Chateau Ollieux Romanis is situated at Monseret in the heart of the Boutenac region of the Corbieres and has been in the Bories family since the mid 19th century. The vines are planted on red clay soil and face south east on a sheltered hillside.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.
