Tasting notes: The nose is concentrated and complex, mixing ripe black fruits, tobacco, cedar, and smoke. The palate is very fleshy, rich in polished tannins. The length is exceptional.
About the winery: The Gervoson family acquired the estate in 1987 and have worked hard ever since to restore this wine's illustrious reputation. Spread over a hundred hectares, Larrivet Haut-Brion presently has 75 hectares of vines, as well as 13 hectares of grounds, woods, and meadows. An ambitious modernization program in the cellar and vineyard has resulted in wines reputed for their elegance and character.
