Chateau Larrivet Haut Brion Pessac-Leognan France Bordeaux Vin Rouge Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Graves 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Smoky and earthy on the nose with herbaceous tones giving this a stemmy quality and leathery notes to the fruit – elevated acids make this tart, light bodied, a bit neutral on the palate, soft tannins, clean finish, fairly fruity, stemmy tannins, a bit short, obviously quite fruit driven (85-86)

a beautiful nose, just stunning, with perfume of flowers and red fruits. The entry is very nice and classy, but from there it shows its weakensss. Nice black berries and with a bit of cool menthol, it 's a bit lean, and short. With more air a bit of cream comes in, but a bit light and not very complex. Still, when finding this wine for under $25, one can get a flash of fair pleasure on the nose and enrty that has more in common with a high class wine, and that is worth the price of this admission alone.

Finely balanced, this has plenty of weight, which shines with the fresh lemon, pear and sweet grapefruit flavors. There is some wood there, but just a hint to give texture. A big success from a fine white wine vintage, and worth aging for 3-4 years. ... Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Larrivet Haut Brion Blanc 750ml
