Winemaker's Notes

Concentrated, golden yellow color. Ripe fruit aromas with hints of mushroom. Round, rich, and concentrated on the palate with candied lemon and yellow fruit flavors. Very long, oaky, caramelised aftertaste

Critical Acclaim

"Attractive rosemary and thyme aromas lead to a very fresh wine with a herbal element. Excellent, with delicious fruit.
Barrel Sample: 90-92 Points"
92 Points

"Rich and round with apple, lemon and toasted oak. Full-bodied, with good fruit and a medium finish. Solid wine.
Barrel Sample: 89-91 Points "
91 Points

"Exhibiting classic Graves aromas of smoky, volcanic, scorched earth, herbs, chocolate, and black cherries, Larrivet Haut-Brion’s dense ruby/purple-colored 2005 possesses superb depth, and silky yet abundant tannins. It is an excellent effort displaying a provocative bouquet as well as 15 or more years of aging potential. "

Makes a great substitute for white wine vinegar if you too tired to run to the store. 12 of 12 bottles undrinkable. What a waste.

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.

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
