Enjoyable with a hugely attractive smokiness, this is tender and a little tight on the finish but full of fleshed-out fruit flavours. It’s just about ready to drink but remains young with a good number of years ahead of it. Matured in 33% new oak. Drinking Window 2019-2032. (JA)
This is an earthy and spicy wine with meat and wet earth character. Medium to full body, fresh acidity and a savory finish. Velvety tannins.
Tasted blind at the Southwold 2012 tasting, the 2012 Larrivet Haut-Brion displayed a muted, earthy and leathery bouquet that fortunately gained intensity in the glass, the red berry fruit running to catch up with expectations. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and well-judged acidity. It feels quite fresh in the mouth and though it might lack some persistence, there is sufficient balance and charm to ensure this will give a decade's worth of drinking pleasure. Drink from 2019-2032. (NM)
This is firmly structured while still keeping plenty of fruit. Juicy black currants are balanced by some dusty tannins. It’s an attractive, rich and concentrated wine that will develop well and over the medium-term. Drink from 2017. (RV)
Grippy and brambly in feel for now, with lots of tar and anise notes out front. The core of plum sauce, macerated black currant and fig paste waits in reserve. A hint of charcoal underscores the finish, along with a slightly chewy feel. Should soften a touch with modest cellaring, as there's a good core of fruit here. (JM, Web Only-2015)
