Wine Spectator - "There's alluring richness here, with an anise hint underscoring the yellow apple, white peach and verbena notes, gaining depth steadily with air. Offers a long, shortbread-enhanced finish. Barrel Sample: 90-93 Points
James Suckling - "The change here is impressive with bright and vivid aromas and flavors of tropical fruits, stones, and minerals. Underlying energy and intensity in this white. Full and flavorful. Barrel Sample: 93-94 Points"
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.
