In magnum format, the Cuvée des Oliviers is without a doubt the best product to make a splash at important dinners and lunches. Because magnums offer a better quality packaging to the wine, allow a longer ageing and are a great asset on beautiful tables, you will be sure to choose a wine of insider. Moreover, this wine is emblematic of Château Virant because it was imagined by its founders and has been perpetuated for years with constancy in the blending and vinification practices.

Its long vatting period of 3 weeks between 20 and 25°C allows an optimum extraction of the 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.
