Chateau Larrivet-Haut-Brion 2000 Pessac-Leognan, Magnum, 1.5 Liter
Magnum, 1.5 Liter

1840 was the year Château Larrivet Haut-Brion was first mentioned among the first growths of Pessac-Léognan. Called at various times Château de Canolle, La Rivette, and Château Brion-Larrivet, the estate was renamed Château Haut-Brion Larrivet by the owner Ernest Laurent (a Bordeaux négociant) in 1874. Robert Parker said about Chateau Larrivet-Haut-Brion "This estate's ownership has demonstrated a renewed commitment to quality, and thus the wines have improved significantly. Kudos to Larrivet-Haut-Brion's owners, Christine and Philippe Gervoson, who have done considerable work restoring this beautiful estate to the list of serious Bordeaux wine producers." This noble estate farms 145 acres of red grapes with an average vine age of 25 years. This wine from the legendary 2000 vintage is a magnum size bottle which allows the wine to develop slowly and evenly. 65% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 14 to 18 months in 40% new oak barrels. Robert Parker scored it 90 saying "The deep ruby/purple-colored 2000's rich, complex perfume displays aromas of cocoa, black cherry liqueur, melted licorice, scorched earth, espresso, and new oak. The wine is rich, firm, tannic, concentrated, and full-bodied with admirable sweetness of fruit. Although firmer and more structured than it was last year, it is a beautiful effort that should be drinkable between 2007-2020." and Wine Spectator scored it 91 saying "Very ripe fruit on the nose, with hints of tobacco and cedar. Full-bodied, with big, chewy tannins, yet soft and luscious. Best after 2007." Limited!
