olivier 2008 santenay 1er beaurepaire

Update 4.9.2010(31.8.2010)billn


Well the last one was really good – so what’s to lose in trying again? Another bit of humour on the top of the cork – I’m definitely warming to this producer. I think I need to try their bourgognes – that’s usually the acid-test!

2008 A&R Olivier, Santenay 1er Beaurepaire
Medium-plus colour. The nose starts almost too forward but slowly settles into a fine and deep expression of red and black fruits and something that almost touches on aniseed. Concentrated and certainly intense this has more padding than the villages Santenay so never hints at anything mouth-puckering. The texture is very good indeed. This premier cru essentially delivering more weight without any penalty in terms of fineness or focus. Really very accomplished.
Rebuy – Yes

    Dear All,
    Thanks for this review and commentary.
    We try to do our best for all vintages and appellations as every wine-maker has to do (?)
    A little humoristic note is not too much actually.
    You’re welcome in Santenay at any time, we could taste the generics if you want so and mostly our White Santenay.
    And never forget, in french “Bois du vin, t’auras des copains !!”
    Antoine OLIVIER
