Cabernet Sauvignon 55%, Merlot 41%, Petit Verdot 4%.
A brilliant, medium-deep ruby colour. A fine, discreet and elegant bouquet.
A fruity and floral bouquet which remains elegant and rather light.
Floral notes like peony bring sensuality. The supple attack on the palate is slightly silky.
The mid-palate is of medium concentration, remaining balanced, with fine, soft, ripe tannins.
The palate gives us a medium-bodied feel with a fairly long finish.
There are certain places where history says far more than words can express.
With its moats, its last architectural remains of a bygone century, and its mullion windows, the estate is a real medieval castle. Located just 11km from Bordeaux city, Château Olivier has seen generations come and go, new ambitions emerge and innovative projects grow and develop, and has plenty of other legends to share with you.
Isolated from other nearby vineyards and protected by forest, Château Olivier shares its land with exceptional flora and fauna. Considered a real natural reserve, our 230-hectare estate at the heart of the Pessac-Léognan appellation is a place of respect and coexistence for people, trees, birds, butterflies, mammals and flowers.
A rich terroir. A top-class terroir. A terroir that now makes Château Olivier and its vineyards one of six Graves Cru Classés for both red and white wines.
The 60 hectares vineyards of Château Olivier stand in primarily limestone-clay soils with remarkable quality and potential for winemaking.
This geological diversity, combined with a very specific microclimate, allows us to create fine wines for laying down that offer naturally complex aromas and nuances. Whether red grapes (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot) or white varieties (Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon), all are characterised by this precise, clean, authentic style.
