Le Dauphin d'Olivier 2011 - Pessac-Léognan


Château Olivier is a Grand Cru Classé de Graves, within the Pessac-Léognan appellation, making wine with an astonishing quality and consistency.

Coming from the same vineyard as the first wine, Dauphin has the specificity to be really close to its big brother in terms of quality. A sure bet for sub-£20 a bottle.
