External Reviews for Château Olivier Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan
This is a fruity, all-stainless-steel-raised Rioja from very old vines in Rioja Alta. The winemaker is a Frenchman who fell in love with Rioja. The wine is bursting with black fruit and spice that comes from the Graciano grape (rather than new oak).
Perennial favourite at BBR and, it should be said, several of its most<br/>prestigious restaurant customers, Franz Venes' Cuvée des Oliviers<br/>is a blend of 30% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 30% Carignan, 20% Cinsault, 10% Syrah and<br/>10% Grenache. It is juicy but with a Southern French concentration, manifested<br/>by hints of herbs, liquorice and spice adorning a bedrock of ripe fruit, of<br/>both red and black complexion.Les Oliviers is showing especially well in 2009,<br/>a stunning vintage across most of the South of France and looking every bit as<br/>good, if not better than the excellent 2007. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
