The 2008 vintage offers a masterful dress, red with beautiful purple hues. This dress is deep.
The nose releases fruity and spicy aromas. The nose reveals aromas of black berries. After a few seconds of aeration, the second nose discloses sweet notes like licorice.
The mouth is a powerful and lively attack with great aromatic complexity. Fresh aromas of red fruits and spices interfere mid-palate with fine tannins. This wine has a real architecture, and suggests that this bottle will keep for many years. The finish is long turned to vanilla.
A wine combining virility and sweetness. A typical power of this Pessac-Léognan.

Reviews about Château Olivier 2012
The 50 hectares of estate vineyards extend between forest and meadows. The planting of red vines is composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot 48% and 2% Merlot.
The wines are aged in oak barrels (35% new) for 12 months.
This 2012 will be able to overcome the difficulties vintage deemed sensitive. It will be predominantly of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), which gives it delicacy and exceptional refinement. A beautiful mature for this year, supported by aromas of red fruits appreciable, married to licorice and spice.
