Chateau Larrivet Haut-Brion 2008

Home > Shop > Chateau Larrivet Haut-Brion 2008

Originally a quite large property called Château de Canolle, the estate was reduced in size a number of times, went through a number of owners, and changed its name in the 1870s to "Haut-Brion-Larrivet", oddly close to the name of their first growth neighbor Chateau Haut Brion but in fact with no connection at all. After some tussles with their neighbors and some legal battles over the use of the name 'Haut-Brion' the estate has been known by its current name, "Chateau Larrivet-Haut-Brion". Purchased in 1988 by the Gerverson family (of Bonne Maman fruit jams) the estate has made marked improvements in quality and it shows in their 90-92 points Robert Parker: "Another sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 is one of the strongest efforts yet produced at Larrivet Haut-Brion. A classic Graves bouquet of earth, camphor, subtle barbecue smoke, and sweet red and black currants is followed by a lush, richly fruity, medium to full-bodied wine displaying superb purity, a beguiling texture, and a long finish. It should drink exceptionally well young, and evolve for 12-15 years." (04/09) 87-90 points Wine Spectator: "Crushed blackberry and licorice aromas follow through to a full body, with soft tannins and a caressing finish." (04/09) K&L's notes - *+ Elegant wine with earthy notes and plenty of minerality on the palate. Soft and very ripe.
