Château Larrivet Haut-Brion
”Smoked cherries, flowers, licorice and plums show up on the nose easily. Medium-bodied, elegant and refined, with loads of freshness, silky textures and dark red, earthy fruits in the finish are found here. This should drink well with just 5 years or so in the cellar and provide pleasure for at least 2 decades after that.”

Vinet har legat 16 månader på 225-liters franska ekfat varav 50% var nya och 45% ett år gamla. Dessutom har 5% av vinet legat på amfora.
”We started harvesting the red grapes with Merlots on Thursday 19th September until 1st October, that is to say 13 days (usually we pick them in less than 10 days).
Cabernet Francs were picked in two days: 30th September and 1st October.
Finally Cabernets Sauvignons were picked between 2th and nth October (during 10 days).
In total, 24 days of red harvests for a fortnight in a classic year!
The yield is low (35.2hl/ha), with a concentration and remarkable tannin maturity. The selection for the great wine represents 65% of the production.
The blend is made of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.”
