Antoine Olivier Saint Jacques Rully 2018

Lively aromas of ginger and minerality with
complementing toasty oak lead to a purely
mouthwatering and saline finish.
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
The stunning collection of wines really showcases this.
Vineyard
The grapes are exclusively from the single vineyard of ‘Saint Jacques’ in the Rully
appellation, the most northern village in the Côte Chalonnaise. Saint Jacques was one
of the first-named plots or ‘lieu-dit’ in Rully, which has become renowned for its high
quality. The grapes are grown in mainly clay and limestone soils, producing round and
appealing wines. 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
The grapes were gently pressed and racked to a barrel where fermentation took place
using natural yeasts. The wine was kept on its fine lees and underwent bâtonnage to
impart texture and complexity to the wine. The malolactic conversion took place in the barrel.
The wine was 100% barrel aged for 12 months, in 350-liter barrels of which 20% were
new oak. The wine was then transferred to a tank where it spent a further six months,
prior to being lightly fined, filtered and estate bottled.
Tasting Note
Lively aromas of citrus and exotic fruit prelude a rich, full palate with delicate minerality
and a touch of complementing oak. Harmoniously balanced with a beautifully clean
and citrus finish.
