Tasting notes: "Olivier enjoyed the same exceptional weather as the other estates in this very great vintage. The wine has all the ingredients for success – richness, complexity of aromas, incomparable fullness, very mature, smooth tannins, and a long-lasting finish on the palate. Charm and power mingle to provide wonderful balance.Everything points to great ageing potential." Château Olivier
Expert Rating: Wine Spectator, 91/100.
About the winery: Located 11 kilometres from the centre of Bordeaux in the appellation of Pessac-Leognan, Château Olivier dates back to the Middle Ages. In 1867 Alexandre de Bethmann became mayor of Bordeaux and his family quickly acquired the estate. Today the Bethmann family still own the domaine and entrusts all of the estates management to Laurent Lebrun, who at 38 has experience in France, USA and Australia as an agricultural engineer and oenologist. In 1953 Chateau Olivier received official classification for both its red and white wines and the vineyards of the estate have seen considerable work and investment in the last few years.
