One of the oldest properties in Bordeaux, the estate dates back to the 11th century and is one of the few actual castles in the Bordeaux region. It even has a moat and a drawbridge! The whites are planted in the cooler limestone and clay soils to keep the zippy backbone of refreshing acid.
“Opening to give notions of fresh limes, lemon peel, white grapefruit and wet slate with a touch of coriander seed. Medium-bodied, the palate is tight, with great tension and loads of citrusy layers, finishing long and minerally.” - WA
Storm this castle and ransack this grapefruit laden treasure!

Wine Advocate

The Olivier 2018 Blanc is a little reticent to begin, opening to give notions of fresh limes, lemon peel, white grapefruit and wet slate with a touch of coriander seed. Medium-bodied, the palate is tight, with great tension and loads of citrusy layers, finishing long and minerally.

James Suckling

A bright and fresh white with a tangy backbone of acidity to the ripe fruit that gives the wine a creamy texture.
