94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Hands down the greatest wine I’ve tasted from this estate, the 2014 Corbieres Boutenac Cuvee Or is 44% Carignan, 23% Grenache, 23% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah that spent 12-13 months in 70% new French oak. Loaded with full-bodied, concentrated aromas and flavors of black fruits, tobacco, wood smoke, pepper and coffee bean, it has vibrant acidity, ripe tannin, tons of texture and a blockbuster finish. The oak shows here, so if you’re oak adverse, give it a year or two in bottle. It should drink nicely for another 10-12 years, possibly longer."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Carignan, Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache. Vegan. Proprietor Pierre Bories is one of the largest vignerons in the Corbières region, with 162 hectares of producing vineyards. His family has owned Château Ollieux-Romanis for 200-odd years, so the family has had plenty of time to purchase additional land. The production includes this chateau but also the separate Le Champs de Murailles and a small array of natural wines under the Pierre Bories label. Both those other projects are under their own headings elsewhere in this report. Vinifications emphasize indigenous yeasts, minimal sulfur additions and generally cool ferments. Bories is adding more and more 600-liter demi-muids to his cellar as time goes on, finding they harmonize well with the fruit he is growing.
