A fresh and indulgent red wine from Graves, unveiled by Chateau Olivier

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 52-hectare vineyard dedicated to its Chateau Olivier red 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. Due to the consistently high temperatures throughout September, the berries were concentrated in sugar, anthocyanins and tannins. The harvests were carried out in good conditions, the grapes perfectly healthy.

Blend

Chateau Olivier 2020 is made of a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (52%), Merlot (42%), Petit Verdot (6%).
