Classified for its red and white wines, Château Olivier is surrounded by forest that not only influences the property’s micro-climate, but which has given it 8 hectares of prime vineyard, already in the Pessac-Léognan AOC. A detailed geological survey in 2003 revealed the forest was planted on a croupe of compact gravel, perfect for Cabernet Sauvignon.
A classic Pessac-Leognan, big, robust and punchy but without any hard edges.
Plush and inviting, with rounded plum, raspberry and cherry notes backed by perfumy
spice and tea. A hint of warm stone runs through the finish.
Serve at 8°-10° with game, red meat, pork and cheese.
