Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby-red color. Complex, concentrated, smoky bouquet with notes of black fruit, cedar, and tobacco. Very soft on the palate with an abundance of velvety tannins. Outstanding, long finish.
My Notes:

About Chateau Larrivet Haut-Brion:

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.
