2011 Cuvée des Oliviers, Massamier, Red Mignarde, VDP Coteaux des Peyriac

Cuvee des Oliviers, Massamier, Red Mignarde, VDP Coteaux des Peyriac
Perennial favourite at BBR and, it should be said, several of its most prestigious restaurant customers, Franz Venes’ Cuvée des Oliviers is a blend of 30% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 30% Carignan, 20% Cinsault, 10% Syrah and 10% Grenache.

It is juicy but with a Southern French concentration, manifested by hints of herbs, liquorice and spice adorning a bedrock of ripe fruit, of both red and black complexion. The 2011 is every bit as good as the acclaimed 2010 and made in a similar linear style, with a shade more restraint than the overtly fruity 2009 and 2007, and none the poorer for that…… Chapeau, Frantz!

Cuvee des Oliviers, Massamier, Red Mignarde, VDP Coteaux des Peyriac
This is a brilliant southern French bargain. A blend of four grape varieties that has the finesse and drinkability that you find in Bordeaux married with the warm and slightly wild flavours - spicy, herbal dark fruit - of the deeper south.

A cacophony of varieties- many of which are classic for the region - make up the bright and focussed blackcurrant  fruit on this good value for money wine. Added to the fruit of course we can see a hint of thyme and a touch of black olive. Lovely easy-drinking fodder from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan, Cinsault , Syrah and Grenache.
