Wine of the Week - Ollieux Romanis Corbieres Classique Rosé

Though it might be cold and snowy in parts of the U.S., we're featuring rosé as our wine of the week! There's no better way to get to feeling spring-like than with a cheerful bottle of pink wine and this Corbieres from Ollieux Romanis just fits the bill. Pale pink color with red berry and pink grapefruit aromas and an elegant palate, with a balance of freshness and roundness - you can feel that warmer weather is just around the corner!

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 some 130 hectares. Along with the Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache Noir, Syrah, Marsanne, and Roussanne, all of which are quite common to the Languedoc, the Bories also cultivate Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, Merlot, and Mourvèdre, the “unapproved” varietals going into their fun entry-level VdP label Capucines. Ollieux-Romanis is also currently working its way to fully organic status, having dispensed with herbicides and pesticides in the late 1990s.
