Bordeaux Futures 2021 estimated arrival Summer 2024
93-94 James Suckling
"Medium-bodied with a fresh, well-framed and flavorful palate. Green apple, pineapple and a hint of nutmeg. Creamy and fresh."
93 Jane Anson
"Really punching out it of the park this year, an excellent white. Slate, lemongrass, white pear, apple compote, saffron and elderflower, savoury and with grip. Touch of reduction on the opening beat"
91-93 Neal Martin for Vinous
"The 2021 Olivier Blanc has a crisp, stony bouquet with freshly-sliced pear, Granny Smiths and orange blossom. The palate is well-balanced with crisp acidity, citrus fresh with admirable cohesion. Perhaps it needs a little more mineralité on the finish, nevertheless this is a very well-made dry white that will not only drink well for at least a decade, but might represent one of the appellation's best values"
"Fragrant white flowers on the nose with sweet lemon scents; this smells lovely. Succulent and just shy of unctuous, it has a nice density and weight on the palate, giving a full mouthfeel and good dose of bitter lemon, sweet pineapple, crisp apple and creamy peach. Round and driving, this has energy and zing and excellent balance from start to finish. Lovely and will be very enjoyable in bottle!"
90-92 Wine Advocate
"The 2021 Olivier Blanc exhibits aromas of green apples, Sauvignon botanicals, white flowers and struck match, followed by a medium-bodied, taut and saline palate. Chiseled and incisive, it shows promise."
