Chateau Larrivet Haut Brion Pessac Léognan 2009
|Brand||Chateau Larrivet Haut Brion|
Wine SpectatorThis broad, mouthfilling red delivers linzer torte, blackberry preserves and mulled fig notes laced with black tea, bittersweet cocoa and anise accents. The long, fleshy finish has a mouthwatering peppery hint. Approachable, but will cellar well enough. Drink now through 2018. 7,250 cases made.
Wine AdvocateA sensational wine from this Pessac-Leognan estate, the 2009 possesses notes of charcoal, graphite, roasted herbs, truffles, spice box, and luxurious quantities of black currant and black cherry fruit. Full-bodied, impressively endowed. and well under the radar for most consumers, this outstanding wine is a sleeper of the vintage and well worth buying. It should drink well for 15 or more years.
Wine Enthusiast90-92 Barrel sample. Big, ripe fruits, full of sweet tannins and exotic spice. Balanced, just an extra hint of ripeness.
