WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“2011 Olivier Blanc has a vibrant, fresh lime and citrus lemon bouquet that is very well defined, delivering the promise it showed out of the barrel. The palate is vibrant and fresh with tangy citrus fruit, a light sea influence, and a brisk, fresh and animated finish that is a joy. This comes highly recommended and is one of the best releases from the estate in recent years. Bon vin!” Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
Olivier is a very old seigniory, dating back to the Middle Ages. It is said that the Black Prince enjoyed coming here to hunt, as the surrounding forests were so well-stocked in game. Since the 19th century, the estate has belonged to an old Bordeaux family in the shape of the Bethmanns. Château Olivier wines received official classification in 1953, for both red and white varieties.
Château Olivier is endowed with the rare characteristic of having terroirs which are equally excellent for red and white wines. Across 55 hectares of gravelly terroir over a clay and limestone base, six different grape varieties are grown.
