A harsh winter followed by a rather timid spring resulted in a late start to the vegetation cycle. The warm and particularly dry summer allowed the grapes to grow in perfectly healthy conditions and reach ideal ripeness levels whilst conserving their aromatic freshness.
Château Olivier was thus able to optimise the aromatic potential of each grape variety by harvesting on a case by case basis – plot by plot, row by row... This year, the grapes were only picked in the mornings. This maintained the freshness required for them to conserve their best aromas. Harvesting by hand, in small baskets. Fermentation in barrels. 10 months with stirring of the lees. 35% new barrels.
Cellaring potential: Ready to enjoy now.
Our Tasting notes: The colour is a clear pale yellow. On the palate it boasts a powerful structure and a rare freshness. It offers great aromatic length and the finish provides fruity notes of citrus, melon and verbena. This is a very rich wine combining live- liness, maturity, complexity and subtlety. Wow.
