2014 Pessac-Leognan Cru Classé from Bordeaux

A year-long working in the vineyard gave beautiful, colourful and homogeneous grapes. The perfection of the Petit Verdot grapes embodies the 2014 Chateau Olivier style. This grape-variety was sparingly introduced a few years ago, and is exceptional this year. This Pessac-Leognan Cru Classé is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. It gives off charming and opulent thick fleshy black fruit notes and a character with good ripeness released on freshness. The attack is nervous, the mid-palate is smooth and the fine-grained tannins are well integrated. The retro-olfaction is peppery and the finish is persistent. This is pleasant Pessac-Léognan.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Olivier was one of the very pleasant surprises, to wit, a vastly improved wine compared to its showing in barrel. It has a perfumed bouquet with fine purity, focused with mineral/cold stone scents filtering through the melange of red and black fruit. The palate is well balanced with supple tannin, a keen line of acidity and well-integrated oak. This displays more substance than recent vintages with a lovely allspice and cedar note towards the finish. I would give this a couple of years in bottle and then enjoy over the next 15-18 years. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
