SKU 04335


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.

Jeb DunnuckLoads of ripe black cherries, plums, bouquet garni, truffle and forest floor emerge from the glass of the deep purple color 2015 Château Larrivet Haut-Brion. With a full, layered, concentrated profile, ripe tannin, and a great, great finish, it's a seriously good Pessac-Leognan that's capable of holding for 15-20 years.

VinousThe 2015 Larrivet Haut-Brion has a superb bouquet with brambly red fruit, gravel and cedar aromas that unfold with confidence in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, quite masculine in style and the only shortcoming is its brevity on the finish. I suspect that a couple of hours in the decanter would benefit this wine and just lend more density on the finish. Promising. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

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.

Wine AdvocateMedium garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Larrivet Haut-Brion offers up fragrant notes of crushed raspberries, Bing cherries and red plums with hints of baking spices, black tea and potpourri plus a touch of crushed rocks. Medium-bodied and vibrantly fruited in the mouth with impressive energy and tension, it has a soft, silky frame and finishes on a lingering perfumed note.
