Chateau Olivier is a big wine powerful and robust but without the hard edge. Ready to drink now and probably for the next 10 years at least. The blend is made up of 55% cabernet sauvignon, 40% merlot, 5% petit verdot. The nose is very expressive with lightly spiced red fruits and sweet blueberry. Velvety full smooth and luscious on the palate, the tannins are well integrated and very healthy balance of acid fruit and alcohol. Tobacco spice and smoke all come from the oak used in the aging. Incredibly easy to drink for such a big wine, very pleasant and enjoyable.
