About

92

"At once ripe yet cool with minty freshness, this Haut-Médoc has plenty of moderately dry tannins and currant fruit character to carry it. Good length. Drink or hold."

91 Wine Enthusiast

"Bold black fruits dominate this generous wine. Its dry, firm tannins are content to play a secondary role in a wine that is packed with dark fruits and general richness. Drink this wine from 2023. -RV"

91 Wine Spectator

"Fresh and focused, with a delightful mix of dark plum, red currant and blackberry compote flavors, enlivened by licorice snap, bramble and tobacco notes. A flash of violet on the finish adds lift. Drink now through 2029. 4,167 cases made. — JM"

90 Antonio Galloni - Vinous

"The 2016 Larrivaux is fabulous. Pliant and expressive, with lovely aromatic top notes, the 2016 has a lot to offer. Red cherry fruit, flowers and mint all inform this understated yet very pretty Haut-Médoc. The 2016 is a wine of total harmony and class."
