Description

The aromatic intensity and balance of a Pessac-Léognan red wine

The estate

Nestled in a vast forest not far from Léognan in the Bordeaux region, Château Olivier boasts a very rich legacy, reflected in its medieval architecture. The estate has been owned by the Bethmann family since 1886, who have invested significantly in both the vineyard and the winery.

The vineyard

A benchmark among fine Pessac-Léognan wines, Château Olivier watches over a 52-hectare vineyard dedicated to red grape varieties. Since 2016, this estate boasts the HVE level 3 and Iso 14001 certificates.

The vintage

A mild and rainy winter favoured an early, even and regular budburst. The frosts on April 7th and 8th had little impact on the vineyard. The relatively cool and wet spring conditions slowed down the vegetative cycle. Flowering took place in hot and dry weather conditions. Between mid-June and mid-July, thunderstorms and heavy rainfall led to strong mildew pressure, which was maintained thanks to the diligence of the estate's teams. The particularly dry conditions in August caused an ideal water stress which ensured the progressive and optimal ripening of the grapes.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (55%)

Merlot (40%)

Petit Verdot (5%).

The tasting

Colour

This wine showcases a beautiful purple colour.

Nose

The nose combines mentholated and fruity fragrances (blackcurrant, blackberry).

Palate

A frank attack precedes a fresh and smooth mouth. A round and delicious palate weaves into a seductively smooth and linguering finish.
