Château les Ollieux Corbières 2005

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

A rumor was started in Paris stating that Alice was the name of the winemaker's mistress. We're here to state the facts: namely, that Alice was the name of the grandmother who started the winery. Based on old-vine Carignan, this wine is light, fruit-driven, and fun.

White wines from CorbiŠres are few and far between; this fact, combined with the consistently high-quality wines we've seen from this estate, almost sold us on this wine before we'd even tried it. Of course, it lived up to our expectations. This equal blend of Marsanne and Roussanne is surprisingly fresh on the palate, with notes of honey, lush citrus fruits, and white flowers. Fermented and aged entirely in steel tanks, it's a rich, round wine, but this quality comes from its viscous texture, not the influence of oak.
