Olivier Cazenave is the most radical winegrower in Bordeaux. Multi-vintage bottlings, biodynamic farming, avant-garde packaging...in so many ways Olivier is re-imagining what is possible in this historic French wine region. Maceration and natural fermentation at low temperature in stainless steel tank. Post-fermentation, aged on fine lees for 6-9 months.
Dry, very aromatic, mineral, floral, tropical with buttery flavours. Echappée - meaning an 'escape', or in cycling a 'breakaway' - is Olivier's multi-vintage blend, a mixture of Muscadelle (usually only found in tiny proportions, particularly sweet wines like Sauternes) and Sauvignon Blanc.
