Château Larrivet Haut Brion 2018 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is fruity, elegant, aromatic and offers a beautiful definition as well as a beautiful intensity. It reveals notes of ripe lemon, quince and small notes of racy minerality associated with touches of quince, small yellow fruits as well as discreet hints of spices, flowers, toasted and very discreet hints of dry oak. The palate is fruity, well-built, well-balanced and offers a beautiful juicy/acidulous frame, a good definition, a beautiful fat, suavity, a beautiful juiciness, freshness as well as gourmandise. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe lemon and juicy / ripe tangerine associated with fine touches of juicy pineapple, vine peach as well as hints of racy minerality, discreet hints of zest and an imperceptible toasted hint / almond (in the background). Appetence and sapidity on the finish. Good length.
