Château Larrivet Haut-Brion was cited as one of the leading wines in Léognan as early as 1840. The Gervoson family acquired the estate in 1987 and has worked hard ever since to restore this wine's illustrious reputation.
Château Larrivet Haut-Brion is an immensely charming 100-hectare estate. The vines are grown in an outstanding location on tall and medium-tall Garonne gravel rises. The superb 19th century château is surrounded by 13 hectares of attractive grounds, including the Jardin d'lvresse, woods, and meadows.
An ambitious modernisation programme in the vineyard and cellar has produced wines reputed for their elegance and character.
Representing the upcoming generation of her family, Emilie Gervoson tirelessly promotes Château Larrivet Haut-Brion around the world.
Château Larrivet Haut-Brion, White
“Very beautiful presentation for this Château wine with a pale yellow color with golden reflections. The particularly complex bouquet reveals aromas of tangerine, lemon and pineapple associated with woody and vanilla notes. Ample, rich and well-balanced, the palate shows great elegance and ends with a harmoniously woody finish. A wine full of promise...”
Wine Advocate 91: "Tasted blind at the Southwold 2012 tasting. The 2012 Larrivet Haut-Brion Blanc felt as if it was burdened with too much new oak on the nose, though underneath lie some attractive citrus fruit mixed with peach and apricot skin. I will be optimistic and opine that the oak will be subsumed as long as it is afforded two or three years of cellaring. The palate is well balanced, the new oak lending creaminess and a slight nuttiness - indeed, blind you might almost mistake it for a Meursault. Partly it is because of the new oak, but I can still see how this has wide appeal and you end up being seduced. Tasted January 2016."
