A juicy red with medium body, round tannins and a delicious finish. Slightly earthy, but a pleasant wine with subtlety and presence. - James Suckling.
Dark chocolate and red cherries on the nose, so aromatic, rich and seductive. Joyful and lifted on the palate, strawberries and plums to the fore but creamy and chalky with such a sappy, agile and lively energy. Lightly framed so you get the aerial expansion of flavour but the texture that grips is chalky and mineral giving a welcome salinity and touch of tobacco and smoke that lands on the tongue. Beautifully presented, smooth and well defined, such succulence and density with no let up through the palate. Intensity, clarity and focus. An excellent second wine in 2021. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter.
The 2021 Larrivet Haut-Brion delivers rich aromas of dark fruits, cassis, coniferous forest floor, licorice and cigar wrapper, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy palate framed by lively acids and powdery tannins. This charming, demonstrative middleweight is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Cabernet Franc this year. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate.
The 2021 Château Larrivet Haut-Brion is terrific, with deep purple and blue fruits as well as some violet notes, medium body, a round, supple texture, and a good finish. - Jeb Dunnuck.
