the earthiness of baked forest fruits together with aromatic

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 recognized 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
The stunning collection of wines really showcases this.
Vintage
Wet winter and spring built soil water reserves which were important for the
forthcoming growing season. A cold snap in February allowed the vines to rest and the
sap to descend. Warm weather in April increased the vine's development, which
continued throughout the hot, dry growing season. Harvest took place under good
conditions producing exceptionally healthy fruit. 2018 is an excellent vintage for both
quantity and quality.
Vineyard
The appellation of Pommard sits between Beaune and Volnay. The grapes for this
cuvée come from Noizons terroir, which is situated on the eastern side of the Pommard
appellation. 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.
Winemaking
Traditional Burgundian vinification took place with minimal intervention. 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: 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 the tank, prior to being
bottled, without fining or filtration.
