The aromatic richness of a smooth and powerful Pessac-Leognan
Chateau Larrivet Haut-Brion is beautifully located on the rolling hills of Leognan in the south of the Bordeaux region. Its distinguished wines present all the typicity of the the Pessac-Leognan appellation.
Chatrau Larrivet Haut-Brion wines are a benchmark in Graves. They are precise, intensely aromatic, perfectly balanced, and have light, elegant oak.
As a result of a brilliant solar vintage, the Larrivet Haut-Brion 2015 displays all the expressiveness typical of the greatest wines from Graves, and expresses all the authenticity of its terroir. This Pessac-Leognan grand cru is a blend dominated with Cabernet Sauvignon (62%), and complemented with Merlot (33%) and Cabernet Franc (5%). The aromatic bouquet adorns itself with ripe, generous black fruit notes while aeration reveals the complexity of the terroir through its smoky notes. On the palate, the full mouthfeel reveals a generous texture with soft, mellow tannins. The mouthfeel stretches all the way in perfect balance to a persistent finish without losing intensity. This is a grand Pessac-Leognan that will evolve gloriously over the next few years.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Larrivet Haut-Brion offers up fragrant notes of crushed raspberries, Bing cherries and red plums with hints of baking spices, black tea and potpourri plus a touch of crushed rocks. Medium-bodied and vibrantly fruited in the mouth with impressive energy and tension, it has a soft, silky frame and finishes on a lingering perfumed note.
