Chateau Olivier Blanc 2020
Pale, yellow color. Very expressive nose with citrus and white flower notes. Starts out with vivacity, citrus and yellow fruit aromas are present. Small notes of pastry appear as well as a certain sweetness. The finish is long and has the signature of the great white wines of Oliver with the length, the aromatic definition and the precision of the fruit.

Chateau Olivier has turned out a classic 2020 Chateau Olivier Blanc that's loaded with bright citrus, lime, and honeyed mineral notes, as well as some exotic floral nuances. It's clean, medium-bodied, vibrant, and just a classic white from Pessac-Leognan that will evolve for a decade. Best After 2023.
For years and years, Chateau Olivier has brought together the present and the past by making wines of great art in an estate that is the stuff of legends... Fashioned by the terroir in which they are rooted, shaped by all those who work the vines, the wines of Chateau Olivier are a magnificent expression of their appellation among the six Classified Growths of Graves in red and white. Skillfully perpetuating the history of the estate, the wine-growers of Olivier help give the wines they produce the same charm and authenticity as its surrounding walls which are nearly a thousand years old.
Our ambition to develop quality further can be seen first and foremost in the dynamic, technically modern methods we use to enhance the terroir. The recent geological discoveries in the two gravel mounds of Olivier have confirmed the richness and diversity of an outstanding viticultural heritage. 11 different terroirs have been identified, passed down by those who once contributed to the building of the fine reputation of Bordeaux’s great growths. The new vat-house, re-designed to bring the very best out of each of the estate’s plots, house the year’s harvest. It is a perfect balance between ancient architecture and state-of-the-art equipment.
