Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence: Domaine des Oullières Rouge 2018
This red Coteaux d'Aix wine from Domaine des Oullières is made from a hand-harvested 40% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache Noir along with 20% Syrah: almost a Rhône - Bordeaux fusion. Mid-weight, versatile, and easy-drinking.
The Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence: Domaine des Oullières Rouge has a wealth of briary, peppery fruit and ripe, rounded tannins and is well-suited to chargrilled red meat and rib-sticking casseroles.

Domaine des Oullières (Famille Ambrosio Collomb Vignerons)
Based just outside the picturesque village of Lambesc, 20 kilometres north-west of Aix-en-Provence on the elevated escarpment of the Chaîne de la Trevaresse, Domaine des Oullières has been run by the aptly-named Ambrosio Collomb family for 7 generations.
Their three Coteaux d'Aix wines - red, white and rosé - make them an enviable one-stop shop for Provence fans. We consider ourselves fortunate to have secured a healthy annual allocation as they are making wines of real personality with a strong sense of terroir.
