CDR Les Oliviers HALF BOTTLE Estezargues 375ml, , hearty, full bodied, fruity, Natural Grenache blend. Les Oliviers is Cotes du Rhone with great character and plump fresh fruit, named after the olive tress which carpet the landscape alongside the vines and fields of Lavender. Like its sister wine, the Cuvee des Galets, it is made with no intervention, wild yeast and no fining or filtration. This is pure gutsy Rhone, a bit ‘Sauvage’ round the edges. Imagine a large terra cotta jug of the stuff with some stew of wild boar in a blustery winter night. Very moreish and very good value.
