The vines are planted on clay-silty soils close to the Dordogne river. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness and primary fruit flavours, like cherries and fresh raspberries. It’s super fruity, rounded and a delight to drink. Proper claret!

Intense garnet colour with notes of cherries and fresh raspberries. Fruity, round and very easy to drink. Echappée – meaning an ‘escape’, such as a romantic getaway, or in cycling a ‘breakaway’ – is Olivier’s multi-vintage house blend, the red version a mixture of a few recent vintages of Merlot from the biodynamic vineyards of Château de Bel. Olivier makes his wines non-vintage partly to create a reliable house style (as in Champagne), partly to distance the wines from what can sometimes be an unhealthy obsession with this or that vintage in Bordeaux.
