96 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This estate is showing a further impressive leap in quality in this vintage. It is solid, dense with great concentrated blackberry fruits and superb acidity. Expect this wine to last many decades."

94 Points - Decanter
"This is generous, well judged and jam-packed with the luscious black fruits that 2016 specialises in. Beautifully juicy, the aromatics are very clean, with a deeply spicy side to the cassis and blackberry. Well worked tannins, very classic Pessac. Excellent."

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"Lively, with lightly mulled plum and cherry notes, backed by licorice root and roasted apple wood details. Fleshy, but lively throughout. Just a touch extracted in feel through the finish."

93 Points - The Wine Advocate
"They 2016 Chateau Olivier has a well-defined bouquet with blackberry, black olive and a touch of undergrowth, quite nuanced at first but unfurling with confidence within a couple minutes of aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, a pleasant salinity and fine structure, a touch of edginess here and a dash of spice towards that finish, which maybe just cuts away a little sooner than expected. That said, up until then, everything bodes well for a strong follow up to the 2015 Chateau Olivier."

92 Points - James Suckling
"Tight and chewy young red with plum and berry character plus hints of tobacco. Medium body and a solid core of fruit and tannins."

91 Points - Vinous/Antonio Galloni
"The 2016 Olivier is plump, juicy and delicious. Succulent black cherry, licorice, tobacco, smoke and new leather are all nicely pushed forward. The 2016 is not super-complex, but it offers lovely depth and creaminess in a soft, open-knit style that should drink well early."
