"Made from 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and 10% Cinsault, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Olivets is a winner in this great vintage. Blackcurrants, black olives, licorice, and peppery notes all flow to a ripe, sexy, opulent Châteauneuf-du-Pape that has terrific purity, ripe tannin, and a great finish. It's a no-brainer purchase."

"Juicy and ripe, with a delicious core of red and black currant and raspberry fruit that has delightful energy, studded liberally with anise, roasted apple wood and graphite notes. The long finish shows a tug of earth and a light floral gilding. Best from 2019 through 2030. 392 cases imported. — JM"

"Tasted blind, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape les Olivets shows gorgeous aromas of purple raspberries and garrigue. Full-bodied and even a bit chewy, it picks up hints of mocha and licorice on the long finish. It's a blend of 80% Grenache and 10% each Cinsault and Syrah, matured in foudres and oak vats."
91 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media
"Bright violet. Ripe red berries and hints of musky earth and cola on the mineral-accented nose. Raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show good clarity, silky texture and a hint of white pepper that builds steadily as the wine opens up. The subtly sweet finish repeats the red fruit note while supple tannins add shape and gentle grip."
