What the experts say...
"Dense ruby/purple, with sweet, unsmoked cigar tobacco intermixed with graphite, black currants, cherries, and spice, it is medium to full-bodied, fleshy, beautifully textured, and long." R. Parker (04/2010)
The first wine of the estate is aged for 12 months in new barrels. On the nose are aromas of red fruits (strawberries, forest berries) and notes of liquorice and tobacco. The palate unveils silky tannins and smooth structure.
Château Olivier, located in Léognan (Pessac-Léognan appellation) and the building classified as an historic monument, is one of the oldest properties in the Bordeaux region. Since the 19th century, the estate has been in the ownership of an old Bordeaux family, the Bethmanns (of German origin). Jean-Jacques de Bethmann is the current owner and Laurent Lebrun the technical director. The 60 hectare vineyard benefits from its wonderful location. Its soil of Garonne Günzian gravel is planted on the higher part with red grape varieties. On the remainder of the plot, richer in clay, white varieties are planted. The red Graves produced are tannic and concentrated. They develop aromas of dark fruits with hints of tobacco and roasted herbs. The wines are well-balanced and very pleasant. This estate is part of the most renowned in its appellation, and it was also classified as a Grand Cru of Graves in 1953.
