Tasting Notes
The Wine Advocate - "The 2015 Larrivet Haut Brion might be overlooked against some startling other 2015s with "Haut Brion" in their name, which would be wholly unfair because this is a potentially great wine. It has an outgoing bouquet with plenty of bright and bushy tailed red fruit that is well defined and very nicely focused. The new oak is carefully used here and gives it real lift. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, fleshy in the mouth with crisp acidity and a nicely composed, lightly spiced finish. This is an excellent Pessac-Léognon and it will hopefully will be well priced. Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points "
Ratings
Wine Spectator - "Tasty, with plum, boysenberry and fig notes forming the core, inlaid with singed alder details and backed by a solid tarry edge on the finish. A textbook Pessac red. Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points"
Awards
James Suckling - "This is very structured and dense from here. Full body, chewy and powerful. Excellent tannin tension. Best ever from here? Barrel Sample: 94-95 Points"
Other Notes
Château Larrivet Haut-Brion was acquired by the Gervoson family in 1987. They restored the estate's unity, once again combining the Château, 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 Château 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.
