Côtes-du-Rhône 2014 - Domaine de l’Olivier, Côtes-du-Rhône

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

This Côtes-du-Rhône’s purple flashy colour suggests that the wine will be fresh and lively. On the palate, the wine is indeed lively and comes along with soft melted tannins that enhance the explosive aromas of flowers and red berries. Just after swallowing, pay attention to the remarkable length of that wine and take the time to appreciate the nice spicy aftertaste. If you enjoy refined wines, this bottle is for you ! 

 

Terroir

Domaine de l’Olivier is made of 48 hectares of old vines planted on hillsides. The old vines especially enjoy these slopes and their southern exposure. Moreover, the soil is made of clay which gives more complexity to the wine. However, old vines exposed south could give wines that lack of freshness, which is not the case thanks to the strong wind that constantly blows on the grapes.

lecepage Grape variety

Grenache and syrah are the two main varieties in the Côtes-du-Rhône appellation. However, grenache comes from Aragon, in Spain. It is one of the most cultivated grape varieties in the world and it spreads thanks to the intense aromas of ripened black and red berries it gives to the wines. Syrah brings to the wine fresh and spicy aromas hence ensuring the right level of complexity and a perfect balance.

lemillesime Vintage

2014 gave their smile back to Rhône Valley’s winemakers after two rough vintages in 2012 and 2013. They produced more wine, which is always good, but most importantly, they produced better wine ! The sun shined nonstop in March so all the grapes blossomed at once, which then allows all the grapes to ripen in sync under the summer sunshine to be all harvested at full maturity. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

In the Bastide Family, the wine is a matter of passion and tradition. The family has been in charge for 4 generations, and it’s not about to stop. Nowadays, Eric Bastide and his son Robin carry on the tradition of excellence of the family. Robin even started bringing his own touch by starting a project of modernization of the winery.
