Tasting notes on the wine: 

Hippolyte is a wonderful blend of French carignan packed with some fruity grenache and syrah. A modern-classic powerhouse wine with ripe red fruit flavors, herbaceous notes, and bright acidity. This crowd- pleasing wine goes well with savory poultry dishes, grilled veggies, or try it with a smoked beef Bourguignon.

About the winemaker: 

The Bories family has been cultivating the Chateaux Ollieux Romanis in Corbières since the mid 19th century.
