Opinión de los críticos
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Larrivet Haut-Brion offers up notes of baked plums, stewed cherries and warm cassis with hints of wilted roses, bouquet garni and raisin cake. Medium-bodied with a good amount of spicy baked berries flavors, the palate has a clever structure of soft tannins and lovely freshness, finishing with an herbal lift.
Deepness and reality to this young Pessac with hot-stone and blueberry character. Hints of minerals, too. Medium body. Bright finish.
While a touch reductive on this occasion, the 2018 Château Larrivet Haut-Brion is nevertheless loaded with potential, offering a big nose of black cherry and blackberry fruits as well as complex smoked earth and chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated, and balanced, it shines more for its elegance and purity than outright power. With nicely integrated acidity and fine tannins, it’s going to be drinkable with just a few years of bottle age and evolve nicely.
This property is located right next to Haut Bailly, and has produced a wine that you would definitely be happy to own - it's one of their best. Bruno le Moine is technical director. It's a nicely balanced wine with good fruit extract and a succulent impact on the attack, managing to avoid any sense of being over the top. It has very good quality blackberry and slate notes, with hidden power.
