Cuvée des Oliviers


The most emblematic expression of the Terroir of Château Virant

Learn more

The Cuvée des Oliviers is an emblematic wine of Château Virant. Created by Robert and Noële Cheylan, the founders of the estate, it has been passed down through the ages with unequalled consistency.

The winemaker, the cellar master and the cellar master all work with passion to produce this mythical wine, the flagship of the estate. The Cuvée des Oliviers is a favorite among lovers of great wines and is a must in the wine cellars of the initiated.

Its long vatting period of 3 weeks between 20 and 25°C allows an optimum extraction of aromas and tannins. Its eighteen months of maturation in first passage barrels gives it character.

It is a testimony to the grape varieties selected for its production, and its mouth offers notes of spices and red fruits. It is structured, powerful, complex with a good length. Its tannins are round but present.
