Other Reviews....
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Olivier has a wonderfully fragrant nose of black cherries, black raspberries, fresh blackcurrants and kirsch with suggestions of lilacs, cinnamon stick, cloves and camphor. Full-bodied, the palate is beautifully poised with loads of crunchy, bright, energetic fruit and a firm, finely grained texture with loads of freshness and a long, perfumed finish. Stunning!

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Advocate

Quite ripe but well-focused, with tarry edges harnessing the currant and blackberry paste flavors. Licorice and apple wood notes frame the finish.

James Molesworth - Wine Spectator

The precise center palate of fruit and polished, fine tannins make this wine ever so attractive at this stage. Medium-to full-bodied. Fresh finish.

James Suckling

The 2018 Olivier is powerful, dense and also quite savory, with terrific persistence and plenty of character. Licorice, game, smoke and grilled herbs add shades of nuance throughout. Today, the 2018 is a bit compact, but hopefully it will flesh out a bit more in élevage.
