    A Pessac-Léognan white wine with great complexity

    Château Olivier Blanc is a Grand Cru classé produced in the Pessac-Léognan appellation. Originating from a vineyard of 8 hectares, it benefits from vines aged 30 years on average, planted in soils of Gunzian gravel and clay-limestone subsoils. The aging of the wine is carried out in barrels, with a proportion of one third new barrels, for 12 months on lees. The 2016 blend contains 75% Sauvignon Blanc, 23% Sémillon and 2% Muscadelle.

    The 2016 vintage offered exceptional climatic conditions. The winter was marked by mild temperatures and strong rainfall, before a very wet spring. Yet a small window in late May and early June allowed for a superb flowering of the vines. The summer was then hot and dry until September 13th, when the rain limited the water stress and restarted grape ripening. The white grape harvest took place between the 8th and 19th of September.

    At tasting, the Château Olivier blanc 2016 shows great complexity. The wine is rich and very aromatic, thanks to Semillon (which is rich and aromatic) and Sauvignon Blanc, which provides a meaty quality to the wine, along with expressive aromas.

    Parker : 91 / 100
    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The Olivier 2016 Blanc gives up elderflower, lime juice and fresh Bosc pear scents with touches of honeysuckle, crushed stones and waxy lemons. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers wonderful tension and intensity with loads of honeyed citrus layers and a perfumed finish.
