Château Larrivet Haut-Brion 2015

Bordeaux - Pessac-Leognan - Red - 14° Château Larrivet Haut-Brion Château Larrivet Haut-Brion 2015 1175/15
  • Parker : 92-94
  • J. Robinson : 16.5+
Château Larrivet Haut-Brion is located 15 km from the centre of Bordeaux in the heart of the Pessac-Léognan appelltion. Thanks to its acquisition in 1987 by the Andros group, the estate has finally come into its own again. Following consolidation, the area under vine is now the same as at the end of the 19th century. In light of the special nature of the soil, manager Philippe Gervoson does everything in his power to adapt his winegrowing to the terroir, using the methods applied by the region's greatest estates. The grapes are hand picked as late as possible for maximum ripeness and carefully sorted before crushing. In 1996, Philippe Gervoson decided to take another step towards quality by enlisting the help of the well-known oenologist Michel Rolland. The white wine of Château Larrivet Haut-Brion is fermented and aged in new barrels. The red wine is kept on the skins for a long time in order to extract as much fruit as possible from the grapes. It is then aged in barrels, some of which are new every year

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
