The Wine Society's Generation Series Corbières-Boutenac 2021

4.000000000 star rating 3 Reviews
From an estate that has emerged as one of the leaders in fine wine making in the Languedoc, this is a blend using old vines, from 40 to 100 years old, and partly aged in barrels. Fragrant with hints of smoke and black-berried fruit. it is full and rich on the palate with considerable length. Ollieux-Romanis, with whom we have worked for many years, were the natural choice to make our Generation Series Corbières to celebrate our 150th anniversary, having produced our member-favourite Society's Corbières for a long time.

More on the wine

Corbières-Boutenac is a relatively new appellation, a first cru for the Corbières appellation, acknowledging the excellence of terroir and a number of outstanding producers making fantastic wines. The rugged hills of the Corbières have become a cherished source of full-bodied reds of excellent quality, and one of members’ favourites in recent years has been Ollieux-Romanis, one of the region’s leading lights with whom we have worked for many years. They were the natural choice to make our Generation Series Corbières having produced our member-favourite Society's version for a long time. The blend here is 45% carignan, 25% mourvèdre, 20% syrah and 10% grenache. It draws its intensity from old vines – 40 to 100 years old – and was aged partly in barrels. Fragrant, black-fruited and smoky, full, rich and long, it’s fine advertisement for this much-loved region.
