Winemaker's Notes

Deep ruby-red color showing signs of age. Earthy, not very fruity bouquet, with notes of tobacco, cedar, and black cherry. Generous, smooth, and warm on the palate, without the dry aftertaste found in so many wines from this vintage.

Critical Acclaim

"Pretty aromas of plum, berry and roses follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with soft tannins and lots of nice fruit. Balanced and delicious. Drink now through 2008. 12,500 cases made."

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.
