    The Precision and Harmony of a Graves Grand Cru Classe

    A magnificent property nestled in the heart of lush greenery in the heart of Graves in the south of the Bordeaux region, Chateau Olivier is a superb reference in the Pessac-Leognan appellation.

    With Alexandre Bethman at the helm of the estate and under the impetus of a dynamic and passionate team made up of General Manager Laurent Lebrun and Technical Director Philippe Stoeckle, Chateau Olivier guarantees consistency and excellence in its precise wines, offering an easily recognizably signature style, characterized by a nice harmony and beautiful minerality.

    Though the episodes of frost at the end of April 2017 did not spare the great terroir of Chateau Olivier, the efforts by the team of the property allowed the grapes to express the very best of this challenging vintage. The climatological conditions of the summer allowed the fruit to reach full maturity and offer a superb phenolic richness just in time for harvest.

    With its blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (58%), supplemented by Merlot (40%) and Petit Verdot representing a smaller proportion than in previous vintages (2%), the Château Olivier red 2017 from Pessac-Léognan is a successful wine indeed.

    With its freshness and intensity, the Chateau Olivier red 2017 displays a superb and powerful aromatic bouquet, dominated by blackcurrant and blueberry notes. Vibrant and energetic, the attack in the mouth explodes with delicious fruity notes enhanced by a brilliant acidity, while tight-grained tannins provide structure and depth that unfolds on a persistent length, leaving a pleasant sensation of minerality on the palate. A refined and precise Pessac-Leognan.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Olivier offers up floral notes of roses and lavender over tobacco, earth and black olives with a baked plums and kirsch core. The palate is medium-bodied, soft and elegant in the mouth with a perfumed finish.
