Chateau Larrivet Haut Brion Vin de Bordeaux 2017
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pessac-Leognan|
|Brand||Chateau Larrivet Haut Brion|
Very bright, with a bold apricot and tangerine profile bursting forth, backed by light brioche and quinine hints. Distinctive and delicious. 500 cases made.
There was a lot of frost here this year, so the Larrivet Haut-Brion 2017 Blanc represents the best of the best, according to consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt. Wow-it has a gorgeous nose of honeyed peaches, orange blossoms and ripe Bosc pears with touches of coriander seed and beeswax. The palate is medium-bodied with awesome intensity and tons of stone fruit and citrus layers, featuring bright, refreshing acidity and a very long honey-laced finish.
