Chateau Larrivet Haut-Brion was acquired by the Gervoson family in 1987. They restored the estate’s unity once again combining the Chateau outbuildings 13 hectares of grounds and 42 hectares of vines under one owner as well as replanting 18 hectares of land that had laid fallow.
A team of enthusiastic professionals has done a wonderful job of giving Chateau Larrivet Haut-Brion back its superb reputation and the estate is once again universally recognised as one of the finest wines in the Pessac-Léognan appellation.
Chateau Larrivet Haut-Brion Pessac-Leognan 2018
Region: Bordeaux, Pessac-Leognan
“Clear rich layers of fruit on the nose, the most gourmet in the line-up with tons of layers of chocolate and liquorice. Similar to the 2016 but with more flesh on the bones, if not as balanced. Definite similarities with 2009 also, in that is has soft and appealing tannins but with punch and power behind them. Drinking Window 2024 – 2038” – 93pts Decanter
“50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc; 40% new oak. Barrel sample. Purple rim, black core. Lots of oak sweetness on the nose, though there’s ripe black fruit underneath. Blueberries and vanilla. That same sweetness on the palate but it is balanced by a freshness that many wines seem to lack. Super-smooth tannins, very flattering, even with, or because of, the oak sweetness” – Jancis Robinson
