Winemaker's Notes:

Dense, mat, golden color. Smoky bouquet with herbaceous (moss, camomile, and verbena) and floral overtones. Full-bodied and very well-balanced on the palate. The acidity seems somewhat low, but there is no sensation of alcohol. Subtle fruity 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.
