Ch. Olivier was classified for both red and white wine in 1953 thanks to its top terroir. However, the quality of the wine was rather average for a long time. Thanks to the owner Jean-Jacques de Bethmann, a huge investment plan was set in 2004. A new director (Laurent Lebrun) carried out a soil study to be able to work parcel by parcel and to coordinate the grapes with the terroir. A new cuverie, a search for perfect ripeness and severe selections are aspects that make the quality much higher than before, still for a reasonable price. Since 2016, the castle is HVE certified (High Environmental Value) level 3. This equals the highest attainable level of respect for nature and in 89% of the treatments, bio-products are used while treatment with copper stays reduced to 3,20kg/ha per year.
