Bourgogne Chitry Blanc Cuvée Olympe

Olivier Morin


White Wine


Bourgogne Chitry



Oliver Morin produces two cuvées of Chitry. Both come from the domaine's own sustainably farmed vineyards, which are plowed and grass-covered. The wines are vinified with native yeasts and aged on the lees in stainless steel tanks. Constance comes from younger vines and is released early with a fresh and light profile, while Olympe comes from older vines and is aged for at least 18 months in barrels to create a richer, fuller wine. If one wanted to simplify, one could say that Constance is the village wine, and Olympe the 1er cru.
