An expressive white wine of Pessac-Leognan by Chateau Olivier
Chateau Olivier is an estate classified for both its Red and White wines in Pessac-Leognan. Close to Bordeaux, in the town of Leognan, this unique wine estate has been renowned for its wines since the Middle Ages.
This classified growth of Pessac-Leognan has an 8-hectare vineyard dedicated to the Chateau Olivier white wine. For this 2019 vintage, the harvest of the Bordeaux dry white started on August 29 and ended on September 12.
The winter was not very rainy and quite mild, leading to an early budding. A wet and cool spring followed, slowing down the bud burst. Flowering took place between May 24 and May 30. The small grapes were concentrated in sugar.
Tasted as a wine future, the Chateau Olivier Blanc 2019 brilliantly expresses the typicity of each grape variety through a wine with a beautiful vibrant acidity and energy on the palate.
