In 1840, the vineyard of Chateau Larrivet Haut-Brion was first mentioned among the first growths of the Pessac-Léognan region. Located adjacent to the illustrious Haut-Bailly, this estate has an excellent terroir of pure gravelly soil in the southern section of Graves. Larrivet-Haut-Brion is well known in European wine circles but only recently has been seen more often here in America. Michel Rolland has advised the owners in winemaking and instituted a strict selection process in the vineyard as well as recommending later harvesting for riper fruit character.

Wine AdvocateThe 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.

Wine SpectatorEnticing, 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. 12,500 cases made.
