The 2018 Larrivet Haut-Brion is a beautiful wine. There's lovely richness here, as well as an effortless tension and purity. Notes of baked earth, iodine, and wild flowers mix with a core of dark fruit, which the finish is chocolate-laced, and very long. This is a brilliantly priced Pessac-Léognan, from an estate on the up.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Larrivet Haut-Brion offers up notes of baked plums, stewed cherries and warm cassis with hints of wilted roses, bouquet garni and raisin cake. Medium-bodied with a good amount of spicy baked berries flavors, the palate has a clever structure of soft tannins and lovely freshness, finishing with an herbal lift.
This property is located right next to Haut Bailly, and has produced a wine that you would definitely be happy to own - it's one of their best. Bruno le Moine is technical director. It's a nicely balanced wine with good fruit extract and a succulent impact on the attack, managing to avoid any sense of being over the top. It has very good quality blackberry and slate notes, with hidden power.
A dense and very deep white with sliced-apple and dried-mango character. Full and layered. Lovely brightness, too. White truffle. Crazy.
A bold, powerful wine, the 2018 Larrivet Haut-Brion speaks with real authority. Smoke, dried flowers, raspberry jam and mint infuse the 2018 with tons of pungent flavor intensity and Cabernet character. Muscular tannins give the wine drive and energy through to the finish. There is so much to admire. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc and 30% Merlot. Tasted two times.
