TASTING NOTES The color is dark ruby with purple reflections.
The first nose is initially a little closed. Quickly it opens with bright and precise fruit.
It continues with smoky and liquorice notes characteristic of the great Cabernets from the Léognan region. The impression remains fresh.
The palate is dense and long, without hollow, perfectly constructed.
The powerful tannins have a very nice grain.
Aging: in new French oak barrels, in one-wine barrels and in two-wine barrels for 14 to 18 months
The Larrivet Haut-Brion 2016 is a blend dominated with Cabernet Sauvignon (62%), and complemented with Merlot (30%) and Cabernet Franc (8%)
