Le Blason de Larrivet Haut Brion

AOC Pessac Léognan rouge

The Story

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 Larrivet Haut-Brion is made by a dedicated team who oversee every stage of production, meticulously tending the vines in order to harvest perfectly ripe, healthy grapes. The grapes of the 25 years old vineyards are handpicked into small crates.

The Wine

50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc

Very beautiful deep garnet-red colour with a complex, charming bouquet featuring roasted and toasty aromas as well as hints of black fruit and vanilla. Elegant, concentrated, powerful and well-balanced on the palate. Long aftertaste with remarkably smooth tannin. A great wine with fine ageing potential that will richly reward patience…
