One of the underachieving classified growths of Pessac-Leognan, the 2010 Olivier is a very good effort. Notes of balsam wood, underbrush, sweet red and black currants, vanilla and spice box are all present in this medium-bodied, fruity, attractive wine. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. Drink: 2013 - 2028. Wine Advocate #205 Feb 2013

The Château Olivier displays fine purity and delineation on the nose with ebullient blackberry, cassis and a touch of blueberry...very pretty. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins on the entry, good weight with just a hint of black olive inflecting the dark berried fruits, but just missing the persistency of its peers on the finish. Good potential though. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

Plush and inviting, with rounded plum, raspberry and cherry notes backed by perfumy spice and tea. A hint of warm stone runs through the finish. Solid. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Exceptionally deep crimson. I tasted one rather tired sample in the UGC blind tasting of this appellation which showed a lack of focus and fruit on the palate. Shame. A second sample deliberately tasted later, non blind though, had been taken four days previously and again seemed a little overdone on the nose but had lovely freshness on the palate – before some fine tannin tightness on the end. Very sweet, pronounced finish. jancisrobinson.com

Well-extracted, quite meaty fruit with good tannins, florality and slight smokiness is there, a good expression of vineyard structure and class. Drink 2015-25. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

Olivier delivers cassis, tobacco and blackberry aromas. Medium bodied, this finesse styled wine ends with an earthy, cassis and fresh herb finish. winecellarinsider.com
