Chateau Larrivet Haut Brion Pessac Leognan 2015

SKU 24024


Ruby color with purplish reflections. The nose expresses black ripe fruits grown more complex by smoky and licorice notes. The palate is long and meaty, with no hollowness. T he tannins are silky. Great wine, perfectly balanced.

Jeb DunnuckLoads of ripe black cherries, plums, bouquet garni, truffle and forest floor emerge from the glass of the deep purple color 2015 Château Larrivet Haut-Brion. With a full, layered, concentrated profile, ripe tannin, and a great, great finish, it's a seriously good Pessac-Leognan that's capable of holding for 15-20 years.

VinousThe 2015 Larrivet Haut-Brion has a superb bouquet with brambly red fruit, gravel and cedar aromas that unfold with confidence in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, quite masculine in style and the only shortcoming is its brevity on the finish. I suspect that a couple of hours in the decanter would benefit this wine and just lend more density on the finish. Promising. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

Wine SpectatorEnticing, with vibrant raspberry and red currant coulis fruit liberally laced with singed alder and dried anise notes. Flashes of rooibos tea and incense weave through as well. A light tarry thread on the finish adds range. Drink now through 2027. 12,500 cases made.
