Tasting Notes and Scores

90-92

Wine Advocate

The 2021 Larrivet Haut-Brion delivers rich aromas of dark fruits, cassis, coniferous forest floor, licorice and cigar wrapper, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy palate framed by lively acids and powdery tannins. This charming, demonstrative middleweight is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Cabernet Franc this year.

Jancis Robinson

Good combination of freshness and ripeness on the nose. A wine that seems to shrug off the vicissitudes of the vintage offering relatively early pleasure. There is some drive here! And length. Perhaps its all-Cabernet ingredients have played a part in this? Classy texture – and sweeter than most. Sweet ink sensation. Great balance.

Jane Anson

This is a good vintage for Larrivet, unfurling slowly in the glass, with layers of dark fruits and edges of floral peony, raspberry leaf, green pepper and touches of savoury cassis. The oak is apparent, but there is good acidity and it will balance out over ageing. An unsusual blend, with no Merlot at all, after frost and poor fruit set, 27hl/h yield overall. One to look out for, and will be interesting in future verticals of the estate. Tasted twice.
