2005 Pessac-Leognan Cru Classe

The 2005 Chateau Oliver is another grand release from exceptional vintage year. This superb Cru Classe offers great combination of opulence, complex aromas, incredible generosity, very ripe and coated tannins, as well as long persistent finish. Charm and strength are masterfully balanced. This Pessac-Leognan vintage carries all the elements for grand ageing potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A healthy dosage of new oak can be found in this dark ruby/purple wine, which doesn't have the complexity of the top wines in the appellation, but is well-endowed. Medium-bodied, concentrated and well-crafted, if not terribly complex, it can be drunk over the next 15-20 years.
