One of the more austere wines at this early stage, dominated by the Cabernet which gives layers of rich, well-held-in cassis and slate flavours. It has good lift and grip through the palate, the new gravelly plot once again showing its potential and its effect on the structure and character of Olivier. A very good wine with plenty of ageing ability. (JA)
Love the aromas of currants and black cherries with blackberries and sandalwood. Full body, round and soft tannins and a savory finish. Shows brightness of fruit and intensity. Attractive balance. Drink in 2021.
This wine has great fruit, rich tannins and attractive acidity. Round and with ripe spicy flavors, the wine already has good balance. Its acidity and crisp final fruitiness suggest a wine that will mature easily and gently. (RV)
Readers should not overlook the 2015 Olivier. Rich and voluptuous, it offers lovely immediacy in a soft, supple style that is sure to find many admirers. A rush of succulent black cherry, chocolate, mocha, licorice and spice infuse this supple, creamy Pessac Léognan. All the elements fall into place in a racy, effortless wine that will drink well right out of the gate. The blend is 56.4% Merlot, 40.8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2.8% Petit Verdot. (AG)
Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Olivier is a little reticent at this youthful stage, offering exciting glimpses at fragrant earth, black raspberries, black cherries and red currant scents with suggestions of mossy bark, bay leaves and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with mineral and earth-laced red and black fruits with firm, grainy tannins and a lovely herbal lift on the finish. (LPB)
Solidly ripe, showing a nice flow to the cassis and plum fruit flavors, carried by graphite and tar accents. A singed alder hint melds through the finish, with a tobacco note lurking down the road. Delivers purity and charm. Best from 2020 through 2030. (JM)
