The richesse of a structured and precise red Grand Cru Classe from Graves

The 2018 is already showing signs of a magnificent vintage at the Graves Grand Cru Classe Chateau Olivier, located in the south-east of Bordeaux.

After a cold winter and a rainy spring, mildew pressure posed quite a threat to the vineyard. The work and constant attention of the technical teams made it possible to fight against the fungus, by relying on a very thorough parcel tracking.

At Chateau Olivier, the grape harvest began on September 14 and ended on October 10 with the Cabernet. The fruit harvested was small, with exceptional aromatic richness, beautiful structure and very present tannins.

Blending Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (46%) and Petit Verdot (6%), the Chateau Olivier 2018 is a wine from the Pessac-Leognan appellation, already displaying the class of a great Graves wine.

At the tasting, the Chateau Olivier 2018 presents a beautiful, deep purple color. The nose is very expressive, revealing vibrant black fruits, blackberries and kirsch cherries, with hints of cinnamon and cloves.

From the onset, the palate is packed with a deliciously dense material, releasing great energy and vivacity, and displaying bright flavors of fruit. The palate is structured and fine, guided by firm tannins with a silky texture. The finish is quite persistent, offering delicious fruity notes, enhanced by refreshing smoky and peppery notes. A great vintage for Chateau Olivier, with a beautiful aging potential.
