Tasting Notes

Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Larrivet Haut-Brion offers up fragrant notes of crushed raspberries, Bing cherries and red plums with hints of baking spices, black tea and potpourri plus a touch of crushed rocks. Medium-bodied and vibrantly fruited in the mouth with impressive energy and tension, it has a soft, silky frame and finishes on a lingering perfumed note.

Score: 91

Lisa Perotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate Maturity: 2020-2038 21 February 2018

Deep and slightly spicy black cherries and blackberries with leafy nuances. The palate has a very pure, lively core of cassis. Full body and deep flavors of blue plums. Try from 2021.

Score: 94

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com 02 February 2018

This is very structured and dense from here. Full body, chewy and powerful. Excellent tannin tension. Best ever from here?

Score: 94 - 95

Loads of ripe black cherries, plums, bouquet garni, truffle and forest floor emerge from the glass of the deep purple color 2015 Château Larrivet Haut-Brion. With a full, layered, concentrated profile, ripe tannin, and a great, great finish, it’s a seriously good Pessac-Leognan that’s capable of holding for 15-20 years.

Score: 93

Jeb Dunnuck Maturity: 2018-2038 30 November 2017

Tasty, with plum, boysenberry and fig notes forming the core, inlaid with singed alder details and backed by a solid tarry edge on the finish. A textbook Pessac red.

Score: 89 - 92

James Molesworth, Wine Spectator 01 April 2016

The 2015 Larrivet Haut Brion might be overlooked against some startling other 2015s with "Haut Brion" in their name, which would be wholly unfair because this is a potentially great wine. It has an outgoing bouquet with plenty of bright and bushy tailed red fruit that is well defined and very nicely focused. The new oak is carefully used here and gives it real lift. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, fleshy in the mouth with crisp acidity and a nicely composed, lightly spiced finish. This is an excellent Pessac-Léognon and it will hopefully will be well priced.

Score: 92 - 94

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate Maturity: 2021-2045 01 April 2016

The 2015 Château Larrivet-Haut-Brion is a real stunner. Vibrant, nuanced and delineated, the 2015 possesses remarkable detail to balance the richness of the vintage. Sumptuous at the outset yet backed up by considerable structure, the 2015 is simply superb today. Creamy, silky tannins round out the highly expressive finish. This is the first vintage made by Stéphane Derenoncourt and his team.

Score: 90 - 93

Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com 01 April 2016

A Stéphane Derenoncourt wine. Very dark crimson. Hugely rich and sweet. Only just remains refreshing.. But it does. Well done. Good tension. (16.5+ Points)

Score: 16 - 17
