Presentation of the vineyard
Ollieux Romanis is located about 10 km from Narbonne in the wine district of Corbières, in the heart of Languedoc. The estate dates back to the Roman times, but wine was first cultivated only in the 1800s. Even today a part of the wine is actually produced from the vines of that time. The Carignan grape takes an important place in production with its 60 hectares of vines with the respectable ages of between 50 and 110 years. Today, it is family Jacqueline and François Bories who owns the winery and produces charming wines made with outstanding professionalism and serious work.
Straw-yellow color. Floral fragrance. Fresh and lively flavor with slight hints of citrus fruits. A light and well balanced white wine with a lot of charm.
