The 2020 Larrivet Haut-Brion displays a deep garnet-purple color and exuberant scents of kirsch, black cherry preserves, stewed plums and warm cassis, plus hints of cinnamon stick and ground cloves with a waft of wilted roses. The medium to full-bodied palate is chock-full of red and black fruit preserves, framed by plush tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy.
A firm, silky red with blackberry, walnut and a hint of iron. Medium body. Fine tannins. Nice energy to this.
The 2020 Larrivet Haut-Brion is shaping up to be a real gem. Bright floral and savory notes perk up a core of red/purplish fruit. Medium in body and wonderfully nuanced, the 2020 bristles with energy. It is a restrained wine for the year, with all the elements very nicely balanced. Impressive and promising. Tasted two times.
