This is a fruity, all-stainless-steel-raised Rioja from very old vines in Rioja Alta. The winemaker is a Frenchman who fell in love with Rioja. The wine is bursting with black fruit and spice that comes from the Graciano grape (rather than new oak).

Château Olivier, a listed national landmark dating from the 12th century, is situated in a site of outstanding natural beauty just 11km from Bordeaux. The estate covers 220 hectares of which 52 are under vine in a single block on a south-facing gravely rise. Great care is lavished in the vineyard : bunches of unripe grapes are removed when necessary for maximum concentration, leaves are thinned out, grapes are sorted before crushing, and the wine is blended so that only the finest vats are sold under the prestigious great growth label. Château Olivier is a well-balanced wine of great finesse and elegance. The white wine is fermented and aged in barrel on its lees, which are regularly stirred. The red wine is fermented in temperature-controlled vats prior to ageing in oak barrels.

Winemaker's Notes:

Perennial favourite at BBR and, it should be said, several of its most<br/>prestigious restaurant customers, Franz Venes' Cuvée des Oliviers<br/>is a blend of 30% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 30% Carignan, 20% Cinsault, 10% Syrah and<br/>10% Grenache. It is juicy but with a Southern French concentration, manifested<br/>by hints of herbs, liquorice and spice adorning a bedrock of ripe fruit, of<br/>both red and black complexion.Les Oliviers is showing especially well in 2009,<br/>a stunning vintage across most of the South of France and looking every bit as<br/>good, if not better than the excellent 2007. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
