This perennial underachiever performed well above my expectations, and I am prepared to say this is the best Olivier I have ever tasted. Dense ruby/purple, with sweet, unsmoked cigar tobacco intermixed with graphite, black currants, cherries, and spice, it is medium to full-bodied, fleshy, beautifully textured, and long. It should drink well for 20 or more years. (Tasted once.)Robert Parker, Wine Advocate February 2012

Tasted at the Pessac UGC. This is very tight and unyielding on the nose: thick black cherry, raspberry and a touch of iodine. The tannins are a little brutish at the moment with a vice-like grip on the palate, a little dry though with good weight. Rather introspective at the moment and short on the finish. Tasted April 2010.

A wine with plum and berry character and hints of spice and earth. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Try in 2015. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Subtle aromas of violet and blueberry follow through to a medium body, with fine tannins and a fresh, clean finish

Strongly savoury on the nose. Dry but rounded tannins. Could do with a little more flesh in the middle but I think this will even itself out in the bottle. Good length. (JH) Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Dense purple red, summery black berry fruits with fine autumnal ripeness, quite broad, nicely concentrated palate, good fragrance, personality, depth and length. Drink 2016-25
