Description

A Delicious and Fine Red Wine from Haut-Médoc

A property located on the edge of the prestigious Saint-Estèphe appellation, Château Larrivaux is an emblematic property of the Haut-Médoc appellation on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region. The estate has continued to produce wonderful wines with a unique style over many centuries. Since 1580, the estate of 19 hectares has passed from generation to generation, along a matrilineal line.

Bérengère Tesseron took over the family business in 2005, elevating the quality of the estate’s wines to the very top of the appellation, while maintaining the identity of a Cru based on finesse and elegance.

With its exceptional vineyard, home to several different soil types (gravel on deep clay and clay-limestone), Château Larrivaux stands out among other properties of the Haut-Médoc appellation due to a varietal composition unusual for the Left Bank, dominated by Merlot (59%).

Product of what is often referred to as a “winemaker’s vintage” (one which truly highlights the talent of the winemaking team) the Château Larrivaux 2017 emphasises the technical precision of winemaking carried out under the supervision of oenologist consultant Éric Boissenot.

Containing a blend of Merlot (59%) combined with Cabernet Sauvignon (29%), Petit Verdot (9%) and Cabernet Franc (8%), the Château Larrivaux 2017 reveals the authentic characteristics of its terroir of origin in a style that highlights the elegance of Haut-Médoc.

Freshness and purity of fruit come through strongly on the aromatic palette. On the palate, the frank and juicy attack leads to fleshy fruit and a structure nicely balanced in tannins-acidity. A discreet woodiness testifies to an appropriate use of oak barrels in ageing. A superb wine of the Haut-Medoc - fruity, delicious and very fine.
