Château Olivier Rouge 2008

OLIV025
A wonderful Claret from a great Grand Cru Château. Whilst Pessac Leognan is not as fashionable as Margaux or St Emilion this wine really delivers with both quality and approachability.

Château Olivier

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.

Tasting Notes

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.

Food Matches

Serve at 8°-10° with game, red meat, pork and cheese.
