The finesse and elegance of a grand Cru Pessac Leognan

The 2016 vintage is a spectacular vintage for the Bordeaux region and it highlights the uniqueness and high quality of vintages from the Pessac-Leognan appellation. The Chateau Larrivet Haut-Brion 2016 is a true benchmark for Graves and shows all the signs of a successful vintage that was perfectly crafted. It also marks a new dawn for the estate since it is the first vintage completely vinified by Stephane Derenoncourt and Frederic Massie.

The Larrivet Haut-Brion 2016 is a blend dominated with Cabernet Sauvignon (62%), and complemented with Merlot (30%) and Cabernet Franc (8%). It is an expression of a powerful and velvety Pessac-Leognan. Perfect vineyard management and masterful vinification reveal all the finesse and brilliance of the fruit noted with light and elegant oak aging. A magnificent vintage from the estate.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Larrivet Haut Brion has a generous bouquet with red cherries, crushed strawberry, cigar box and light smoky scents that seem very seductive. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin. The new oak here seems a little ponderous and slightly occludes both the fruit and terroir expression, therefore drying out the finish and leaving a mouth-puckering effect. Hopefully this will gain more balance during its barrel maturation, and gain more cohesion and detail on the finish. At the moment, I would favor the excellent 2015 Larrivet Haut Brion. Tasted three times with consistent notes.
