VINUM: "Zurückhaltende, perfekt integrierte Ausbauwürze, dann fruchtig; glasklarer Auftakt, fleischige Entwicklung über besonders saftigen Gerbstoffen, Spannkraft und Länge; mit Präzision gekeltert, durch und durch gelungen."
JEB DUNNUCK: "I loved the 2022 Château Olivier. It's a full-bodied, rich, powerful Graves offering ample red and black fruits, some chocolate and spicy nuances, plenty of mid-palate depth, and nicely integrated tannins. It shows the riper, textured style of the vintage without going over the top."
JAMES SUCKLING: "Blackcurrant and graphite with hints of stones. Medium body. Firm tannins and a juicy finish. Rather tight and lean at this stage."
DECANTER: "Chewy and ripe, tannins are excellently presented, mouth coating and filling, chewy also, but they have a gorgeous cool blue fruit and stony element that is so moreish. Not so overly juicy and vibrant but really well controlled. Feels purposeful and excellently presented with bounce, flesh, texture, fruit and life. Super charming in a really quiet way. Tannins just linger on the finish giving some dryness but this should resolve. A yield of 34hl/ha."
LISA PERROTTI-BROWN: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2022 Olivier Rouge rolls out with notions of juicy plums, black raspberries, and mulberries, followed by wafts of lavender and black olives. The medium to full-bodied palate offers a racy backbone and firm, chewy tannins to match the generous fruit, finishing on a lingering earthy note."
