Château Larrivet Haut-Brion 2022
Château Larrivet Haut-Brion
From 1840 to today, the fame of Château Larrivet Haut-Brion has continued to grow.
First "Château de Canolle," then "La Rivette," then successively "La rivette," and "Brion-Larrivet," it is not until 1874 that the property acquires its almost definitive name.
Named then "Château Haut-Brion Larrivet", it belongs to Ernest Laurent, a merchant of the Place de Bordeaux.
In 1893, the Château Haut-Brion-Larrivet becomes the property of Bordeaux shipowners, Messrs. Les fils de Théodor Conseil. Enlarged, developed, the property then had 50 hectares of vines.
A trip back in time propels us to 1898, a fabulous year when the famous Féret guide classifies the wines of Château as an "exceptional vintage" of the Graves.
In 1929, the property finally found its name: Château Larrivet Haut-Brion. Its new owner, Mr. Guillemaud, acquired the entire vineyard in 1941.
He would remain its demanding and attentive owner until 1982.

Description Château Larrivet Haut-Brion 2022.
Vintage 2022 : A relatively dry and cool winter. Very dry spring but one week of saving rain in June. June, July, August: Very rare "heat wave-drought" combination.
In the end, the vines were resilient.
Deep, dark colour. The nose is marked by aromas of liquorice and mint which blend harmoniously with notes of black fruit.
On the palate, the tannins are present and silky, giving a velvety and dense texture, and the finish is persistent with a good length, offering all the dynamism of the wine.
