How it's made

Olive groves and vines flourish in the sun-drenched vineyards of the Languedoc in southern France and it is this area that the Boutinot wine making team uncovered a single plot of Merlot (which produced ripe, luscious fruit) and a single plot of Mourvèdre - a variety which would provide a hint of spice to the easy drinking style of Les Oliviers. Grapes are de-stemmed and macerated at cool temperatures prior to fermentation (in order to retain the fresh fruit flavors) and the wine is vinified without oak before the final blend is assembled.

Food Match

Can be enjoyed with or without food, although it would happily partner hearty pastas and
Mediterranean dishes flavored with tomatoes, olives or anchovies.

Tasting Notes

Brightly perfumed fruit, a hint of lavender, then classic Merlot flavors: ripe red summer berries, plums and damsons. Mourvèdre shows its grip with warm spice and a green, herby edge on the finish.
