long and elegant, classic red Burgundy.

Producer Note
Antoine Olivier was founded at the end of the 1960s, from a few vineyards left by
Antoine Chevalier Moreau to his grandson, Hervé Olivier. Hervé began extending the
estate by purchasing historic, old vineyards across Santenay, some of which had not
been used for a century, paying particular attention to famous white wine vineyards.
The quality of these soils is now recognised in a series of brilliant wines, in particular
the exceptional white Santenay, something of a rarity in what is predominantly a red
wine growing area. Today, Hervé’s grandson Antoine Olivier and his sister Rachel
manage the estate. They are dedicated growers and follow organic practices in the
vineyard. Their philosophy is to combine modernity with respect for the Burgundian
soils and this stunning collection wines really showcases this.

The grapes come from the single vineyard plot of ‘Beaurepaire’, which is situated at
the highest elevation of all the Premier Crus in Santenay. This east facing site has a
unique microclimate and it produces a very elegant style of wine from limestone and
clay soils. The vineyard is managed with respect for the unique attributes of each
site’s terroir and is farmed sustainably and organically, although it is not certified.
Some biodynamic philosophies are also followed. The grapes are hand-picked and
carefully sorted prior to vinification.

Traditional Burgundian vinification took place with minimal intervention. 70% of the
grapes were vinified as whole clusters. Fermentation took place with natural yeasts
and without any ‘pigeage’ or punching down of the cap. The wine was 100% barrel
aged for 12 months, in a combination of oak barrels. One third was aged in new
oak, one third in one year old oak and one third in two year old oak. The wine then
rested for a further six months in tank, prior to being bottled, without fining or filtration.

Tasting Note
A beautifully perfumed and delicate Pinot Noir, with fine red fruit tones and a silky
texture. Smooth, long and elegant on the finish, classic red Burgundy.
