Olivier Cazenave is the most radical winegrower in Bordeaux. Multi-vintage bottlings, biodynamic farming, avant-garde packaging...in so many ways Olivier is re-imagining what is possible in this historic French wine region.
Echappée - meaning an 'escape', or in cycling a 'breakaway' - is Olivier's multi-vintage house blend, the white version a mixture of Muscadelle (usually only found in tiny proportions, particularly sweet wines like Sauternes) and Sauvignon Blanc. Unlike Olivier's own red grape vineyards, these are bought from a friend and so aren't certified biodynamic, but they're still sustainably farmed on a clay-limestone, hillside vineyard. Fermented in stainless steel, then 6-9 months on the fine lees for texture. It's dry, very aromatic (thank you Muscadelle!), mineral and floral with a medium body and long finish.
