Château Olivier unveils a fruity and delicate white wine from Graves
Nestled in a vast forest not far from Léognan in the Bordeaux region, Château 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-Léognan appellation.
This Graves Classified Growth, certified HVE (High Environmental Value) Level 3 and ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) 14001 since 2016, watches over a 8-hectare vineyard dedicated to its white wine.
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.
The wine is a beautiful, light yellow colour.
The nose unveils delicious, expressive citrus notes.
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.
