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 :
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Larrivet Haut-Brion reveals a beguiling, earthy/truffle-laced nose with notions of crushed rocks, tilled soil, fungi and mossy bark over a core of warm cassis and blackberry compote. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is elegantly crafted with soft, fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with a quiet intensity of savory nuances.
