Chateau Olivier unveils a fruity and delicate white wine from Graves

The estate

Nestled in a vast forest not far from Leognan in the Bordeaux region, Chateau 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 vineyards and the wine cellars of the Pessac-Leognan appellation.

The vineyard

This Graves Classified Growth, certified HVE (High Environmental Value) Level 3 and ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 14001 since 2016, watches over a 8-hectare vineyard dedicated to its white wine.

The vintage

The wonderfully mild winter encouraged an early bud break. Frost at the end of March did not impact the vineyard. Mildness during the spring, coupled with heavy rainfall, led to strong mildew pressure. If the beginning of June was rainy, conditions during the summer were particularly hot and dry until 11 August, when three days of rain revived ripening. The harvests were carried out in good conditions, the grapes perfectly healthy.

Blend

The 2020 white Château Olivier is made of a blend of Sauvignon Blanc (75%) and Semillon (25%).

Tasting

Color

The wine is a beautiful, light yellow color.

Nose

The nose unveils delicious, expressive citrus notes.

Palate 

Following a lively attack, the palate gently mixes citrus aromas with notes of fresh pastries. The finish seduces with its persistence and its fruity notes.
