Barrel Sample. Crisp, tight and mineral driven, the wine is both crisp and textured. The citrus and green fruits give freshness as well as spice flavors. The wine should be very fine as it matures.

This has nice fresh lemon peel, gooseberry and wet stone notes, with tarragon and fleur de sel accents through the finish. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Drink now through 2025. 2,000 cases made, 300 cases imported.

Château Olivier has turned out a classic 2020 Château 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-Léognan that will evolve for a decade.

The 2020 Olivier Blanc is a pretty, medium-bodied, Sauvignon-dominant white evocative of grapefruit oil and lemongrass. Crisp and precise, it's less fleshy and textural than its 2019 counterpart. Bottled under natural cork, I suspect it will be at its best young.

The 2020 Olivier Blanc has a straightforward bouquet with lemon rind and pineapple scents, missing the tension of some of the better dry whites in this vintage. The palate is taut and linear, quite fresh, with better tension than its showing in barrel but just a bit lean on the finish. Fine.
