Description
The aromatic richness of a smooth and powerful Pessac-Léognan.

Château Larrivet Haut-Brion is beautifully located on the rolling hills of Léognan in the south of the Bordeaux region. Its distinguished wines present all the typicity of the Pessac-Léognan appellation.

Châtrau 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-Léognan 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. This is a great Pessac-Léognan that will evolve gloriously over the next few years.

    Deep and slightly spicy black cherries and blackberries with leafy nuances. The palate has a very pure, lively core of cassis. Full body and deep flavors of blue plums. Try from 2021. (2/2018)

  • 93 Jeb Dunnuck

    Loads of ripe black cherries, plums, bouquet garni, truffle and forest floor emerge from the glass of the deep purple color 2015 Château Larrivet Haut-Brion. With a full, layered, concentrated profile, ripe tannin, and a great, great finish, it’s a seriously good Pessac-Leognan that’s capable of holding for 15-20 years. (11/2017)

  • 90-93 Vinous Antonio Galloni

    The 2015 Château Larrivet-Haut-Brion is a real stunner. Vibrant, nuanced and delineated, the 2015 possesses remarkable detail to balance the richness of the vintage. Sumptuous at the outset yet backed up by considerable structure, the 2015 is simply superb today. Creamy, silky tannins round out the highly expressive finish. This is the first vintage made by Stéphane Derenoncourt and his team. (AG) (4/2016)

  • 91 Robert Parker Wine Advocate

    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.

  • 91 Wine Spectator

    Enticing, with vibrant raspberry and red currant coulis fruit liberally laced with singed alder and dried anise notes. Flashes of rooibos tea and incense weave through as well. A light tarry thread on the finish adds range. Drink now through 2027. (3/2018)

  • 91 Decanter

    Rich dark chocolate and damson coulis nose – fruit over finesse. It’s a touch heavy with the ripe fruit but still very pleasurable.
