This Tuesday July 5 we will have a great opportunity to meet Pierre Bories of Chateau Ollieux Romanis, and taste several of his fantastic wines.
Pierre Bories is visiting Pittsburgh for only one day so I arranged with Brasserie 33 to serve four Ollieux Romanis wines. These wines are from the heart of the “Corbieres” region of southern France (Languedoc) – similar in style to rich and flavorful wines of the Southern Rhone, I have tasted the Capucine Red and Love it. In fact the Capucine Red has become one of my go-to recommendations when people ask me to suggest a flavorful red wine that will complement food, and the affordable price point makes it quite popular. This will be a very interesting tasting I am sure!
We will taste these wines with Pierre:
Cuvee Capucine Blanc (95% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Grenache Blanc)
Rose Cuvee Classique (65% Grenache Blanc, 35% Cinsault)
Cuvee Capucine Rouge (equal parts Carignan, Grenache, Syrah, Merlot)
Corbieres Classique (40% Carignan, 30% Grenache, 30% Syrah)
