Winemaker's Notes

"The deep ruby/purple-colored 2000's rich, complex perfume displays aromas of cocoa, black cherry liqueur, melted licorice, scorched earth, espresso, and new oak. The wine is rich, firm, tannic, concentrated, and full-bodied with admirable sweetness of fruit. Although firmer and more structured than it was last year, it is a beautiful effort that should be drinkable between 2007-2020. This estate's ownership has demonstrated a renewed commitment to quality, and thus the wines have improved significantly. Kudos to Larrivet-Haut-Brion's owners, Christine and Philippe Gervoson, who have done considerable work restoring this beautiful estate to the list of serious Bordeaux wine producers." Wine Advocate

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.
