Part of Best Pessac & Graves 2019 wines tasted en primeur
"A great expression of Pessac-Léognan, combining tons of dark Cabernet-led fruit with elegant but gourmet complexity from liquorice and cigar box notes. Hard to argue with, tannins a little austere on the finish right now, but suggests great potential for ageing. Drinking Window 2024 - 2040."
THE WINE ADVOCATE 92-94
"Composed of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2019 Olivier was harvested from the 17th September to the 8th of October. Yields were 47 hectoliters per hectare this year. The alcohol came in at 14.6% with a pH of 3.66. Deep garnet-purple in color, it slowly unfurls to reveal notes of fresh blackcurrants, blackberry pie and plum preserves with compelling touches of woodsmoke, charcoal and underbrush. The palate delivers a rock-solid backbone of firm, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, backing up the muscular black fruits, finishing on a lingering mineral note. Very serious wine!"
