Olivier-Pessac-Leognan-375ml-2015

Cht. Olivier, (Pessac-Leognan) 375ml, 2015

“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.”
- James Suckling (93 points)

“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.”
- Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate (91 points)

“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.”
- Wine Spectator (91 points)

“The 2015 Olivier offers attractive brambly black fruit mixed with briary and cedar. My feeling is that this has closed up since I tasted it just after bottling. The palate comes across a tad raw on the entry with harder tannins than before, although I suspect it will improve with continued bottle age. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.”
