WA: 98 -100 The 2020 Haut-Brion is a blend of 42.8% Merlot, 39.7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17.5% Cabernet Franc, harvested from 7th to 29th September, with an estimated alcohol of 15% and a pH of 3.8. Opaque purple-black colored, it leaps from the glass with a first wave of vibrant black raspberries, ripe blackberries and mulberries scents, followed by a powerful core of warm cassis, dark chocolate and violets, before bursting into an array of crushed rocks, iron ore, tree bark and black truffles notes. The concentrated, densely packed, full-bodied palate is not in the least bit heavy, delivering a refreshing backbone of red berry and dried herbs suggestions, framed by seamless acidity and very finely grained tannins, finishing on an epically long, fragrant earth note. Simply stunning.
Château Larrivet Haut-Brion is a Bordeaux wine estate in the Pessac-Léognan district, 9 miles (15km) south of the city. Its reputation has been on the rise since an excellent 1996 release of the Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant wine, although its prices have remained sensible.
The estate has been called several names over the years, including Château de Canolle, La Rivette, Brion-Larrivet and Haut-Brion Larrivet, taking on its current name in 1929. During the depression of the 1930s, production was almost non-existent and many vines were uprooted, but plantings within the wider property have increased greatly over the last few decades.
