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.
White Cuvée Prestige from Ollieux romanis has a golden yellow color with golden shades. The nose is generous with hints of white flowers and exotic fruit. The palate is powerful and rich, but with a great freshness. A certain refined volume and fat mouthfeel. A gastronomic white wine to pair with various chicken dishes, with a crab or with the cheese tray.
