Chateau Larrivet Haut-Brion 2016, Pessac Leognan
The color of the wine is dark ruby with purplish reflections.
To start with, the first nose is a bit closed but it opens quickly to bright and neat fruits. Smoked and liquorice notes then appear, characteristic of the great Cabernet of Léognan terroir.
The overall impression remains fresh. The mouth is dense and long, without shallow, perfectly built. The tannins are powerful with a lovely texture.
A great wine for a great vintage of Bordeaux.
