Ollieux Romanis ‘Atal Sia’ Corbières Boutenac 2005

89+ points

Corbières Boutenac, France. 14%

Astonishingly approachable, and yet this is a powerful young wine with capacity to age for 5-10 years. I believe this is 100% Carignan an overlooked and unjustly maligned grape variety. This is modern boutique Australian winemaking style. With lashings of black stone fruit and lovely dusty dry chocolate tannins.

Run by a Pierre Borie (any relation to Xavier Borie – of Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste ?).

  1. Just tasted this wine with Pierre Bories.

    Atal Sia = Let it be in the old Langue d’Oc.
    The wine is 45% carignan, 25% Grenache, 25% Mourvedre [co-fermented] and 5% Syrah. All carbonic maceration .
    No oak.
    Pierre Bories is not related to Xavier Borie.
