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.
This is something really different, a Merlot made with fellow maverick winemaker Jeff Carrel from Olivier's small, 2-hectare biodynamic vineyard in Montagne-Saint-Émilion. It's undergone carbonic maceration, a technique better known for the wines of Beaujolais. A small amount of grapes are picked a week early, with semi-carbonic maceration started; then the rest of the harvest is added, and everything goes through closed carbonic maceration for 20 days before spending three months in tanks before bottling - in gorgeous Burgundy shape bottles. What you have is an unoaked, beautifully aromatic, soft, elegant Merlot, with plenty of dark fruit alongside truffles and spice. Very, very lovely indeed, and unlike anything you'll find elsewhere in Bordeaux.
