Chateau Larrivet Haut-Brion 2018, Pessac Leognan (Magnum)
Rich and complex flavour profile
Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc grapes, which are grown on the estate's vineyards located on the left bank of the Garonne river.
It has a deep ruby color and an aroma of black fruits, including blackcurrant, blackberry, and black cherry, along with notes of spices, tobacco, and cedar. On the palate, it is full-bodied and rich, with flavours of dark fruits, chocolate, and coffee, along with a hint of mineral and a well-balanced acidity. The finish is long and smooth, with a good tannic structure. It has a rich and complex character, with a good depth of flavour and a strong sense of terroir.
Best enjoyed with grilled meats, roasted vegetables, or strong cheeses. It can also be aged for several years to develop more complexity and nuances.
