Chateau Larrivet Haut-Brion Pessac-Leognan 2010


Powerful and intense, with deep dark chocolate, black cherry and blackcurrant…black everything. It has more depth of flavour than the 2011 vintage, although both are exceptional wines with lots to offer. Very tannic, this is austere but doesn’t show any bitterness. 65% of production was used in the grand vin, matured in 33% new oak.

Decanter: 92 pts; Vinous: 92 pts; WA: 90 pts.
