Marks and reviews
Superbly located in the Pessac-Léognan appellation, Château Larrivet Haut-Brion shines in south Bordeaux. The estate gained its nobility following its acquisition in 1987 by the Gervoson family, who work with passion and enthusiasm to produce wines of character and great elegance.
Château Larrivet Haut-Brion is a Pessac-Léognan wine made from a vineyard that has grown from 17 hectares in 1987 to 75 hectares of vines in just a few years, following the acquisition of new plots of vines and new planting. 9 hectares are dedicated to the production of this Château Larrivet Haut-Brion white 2022. The vines are 30 years old on average and are planted on sandy gravel on a limestone base.
A dry and cool winter preceded a spring that had particularly dry conditions, offset by a week of rain in June. The vines withstood the summer conditions combining heatwave and drought, revealing a yield of great quality during the harvest.
Winemaking and ageing
The grapes were harvested by hand in small crates and then meticulously sorted. They were pneumatically pressed followed by a light settling. Rapid fermentation at low temperature to preserve the aromatic potential. Aged in new barrels (70%) and wooden vats (30%).
Sauvignon Blanc (86%)
The wine is a shining pale yellow colour.
Le nez dévoile de savoureuses fragrances fruitées (pêches, abricots, fruits exotiques). The nose reveals delicious fruity fragrances (peach, apricot, exotic fruit).
The palate has a beautiful freshness and delights with its balance and vivacity.
