Château Larrivaux 2007 Haut Medoc
Round, full flavoured, nicely balanced and soft. Perhaps not as complex as its more illustrious neighbours but drinking well now .
- GrapesCabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
This estate has been in the same family for over 300 years, unusually passing exclusively down the female line. The Estate runs now to 100 ha with vineyards planted to the four main varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The soils are gently sloping gravelly clay. The wines are fermented in cuve and see about 20% oak-ageing. They reflect something of their feminine heritage being supple and soft on the palate.
