Opus One Overture – New Pre-Order
Opus One Overture
The essence of time is expressed in Opus One by the character of each vintage. Place, often defined as terroir, represents the geography, the climate and the essential human element which is captured in the wine’s balance between power and finesse, structure and texture.
Elegance and Complexity
In keeping with the tradition of many great Bordeaux estates, we produce a fine second wine, Overture. A natural extension of the creation of Opus One, Overture is the timeless expression of our estate vineyards.
A timeless expression of our estate vineyards, Opus One Overture is full bodied but approachable in its youth. Overture shows generous dark fruit aromas and flavors with a soft, supple mid-palate.
The Art of the Cellar
Overture reflects the winemaker’s artistry by showcasing the talent of blending five traditional Bordeaux grape varieties and capturing terroir characteristics of the same variety grown in different soils. However, Overture’s third blending aspect – that of marrying multiple vintages – yields a softer, rounder expression of our estate that can be enjoyed upon release.
