Product Details

This wine displays a deep and dense dark amaranth red color, offering a visually striking presence. The nose is powerful and intense, beginning with enveloping aromas of roasted nuances and caramel, which give way to a very pure and lively expression. Upon tasting, the wine reveals a full and velvety attack, showcasing remarkable silkiness and a characteristic fruitiness reminiscent of blackberries. Subtle hints of cedar and a touch of salinity contribute to its overall freshness and complexity. The finish is seemingly endless, characterized by a remarkable persistence that underscores the wine's elegant profile. Crafted from a blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, and 16% Cabernet Franc, this wine exemplifies the harmonious marriage of distinct varietals.

Press Reviews

91WINE ADVOCATE

Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Larrivet Haut-Brion reveals a very pretty nose of kirsch, redcurrant jelly and Black Forest cake, followed by emerging cassis, aniseed, bouquet garni and tree bark notes. The medium-bodied palate is delicately played with soft-spoken red and black fruits and herbal accents, framed by firm, fine-grained tannins and loads of freshness, finishing long and lifted.

94JEB DUNNUCK

Showing beautifully, the 2018 Château Larrivet Haut-Brion sports a dense purple hue as well as a ripe, concentrated, sweetly fruited style to go with classic Pessac notes of sweet tobacco, blackcurrants, damp earth, chocolate, and charcoal. It has a solid sense of purity and freshness, plenty of ripe, sunny fruit, and classy, seamless tannins, all pointing toward a long drink window. I think it's a step up over the 2016. Enjoy bottles over the coming 20-25 years.

92JAMES SUCKLING

Spiced cherry, blackcurrant, dried oyster, black olive and bark on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, creamy tannins. Chewy and flavorful with a savory, mineral finish.
