Château Larrivet-Haut-Brion Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Robert Parker gave this wine 90 points and said "A sleeper of the vintage, this impeccably run estate has fashioned a supple textured, complex 2001 revealing notions of dried Provencal herbs, high quality cigar smoke, black currants, plums, incense, and Asian spices. Medium-bodied with no hard edges, expansive, sweet tannin, loads of spice as well as black currant and cherry fruit, it can be drunk now or cellared for 6-8 years."

A sleeper of the vintage, this impeccably run estate has fashioned a supple textured, complex 2001 revealing notions of dried Provencal herbs, high quality cigar smoke, black currants, plums incense, and Asian spices. Medium-bodied with no hard edges, expansive, sweet tannin, loads of spice as well as black currant and cherry fruit, it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-14 years.

Aromas of blackberries, minerals and dark chocolate. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium finish. This is an underrated château that almost always makes very good wines. Best after 2005.
