Technical sheet · Clos du Mont Olivet Vieilles Vignes Rouge
“First produced in 1996 it is a blend of mainly Grenache (40 year vines on average) with some Carignan planted in 1972 and Syrah planted in 1983. This wine takes its name from the two vineyards which give the grapes. It's the wine which is perhaps the most terroir of our different Cotes du Rhones. A lot of its personality is due to the Carignan which bestows a definite tannic structure which is softened by the opulence and soft spices of the Grenache.”
