Lemon zest, smoky oak, fig, and buttery tropical fruit characteristics are present in this straightforward, fruit-driven Pessac-Leacute;ognan. Earthy, with good acidity as well as excellent weight and depth, it should be consumed over the next 10ndash;12 years.

Mild lees scents introduce this supple young wine, showing finesse in its structure, though not much flavor yet. The acidity seems to hold flavors of kumquat and grapefruit, even as the oak suppresses them. This should show more of itself when five to eight years old.

Lemon zest, smoky oak, fig, and buttery tropical fruit characteristics are present in this straightforward, fruit-driven Pessac-Léognan. Earthy, with good acidity as well as excellent weight and depth, it should be consumed over the next 10-12 years.

Tropical fruit aromas, with lemon, apple and hints of toasty coconut. Full-bodied, with lots of fruit, honey and banana flavors. Layered and rich, with a long finish. Needs time. The best white in a long time from this estate. Best after 2009.

[Barrel tasting] Lots of apple, mineral and lemon character with vanilla undertones. Full-bodied, with a bright acidity and a long finish. Serious. Well done.

Another excellent vintage for Bordeauxandrsquo;s dry whites, which tend to be vastly underrated and exceptionally long-lived (30andndash;40 years in some cases). The 2005s possess crisp acidity as well as serious weight, richness, and texture. Space constraints did not allow full tasting notes, but this is one of the top 2005 dry white Bordeaux wines.

Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle. A classic white Bordeaux, stylish and versatile with light aromas of lemon, grapefruit and melon complimented by a crisp and medium body. Chateau Olivier have deisgned this wine to drink young but it will also age for up to 10 years.
