Larrivet-Haut-Brion-Pessac-Leognan-2014

Larrivet Haut Brion, (Pessac-Leognan), 2014

The 2014 Larrivet Haut Brion was closed on the nose when I tasted it: sultry damp moss and woodland scents infusing the reluctant black fruit, clearly needing more time to evolve. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly lactic entry. The acidity feels a little lower here, although there is a pleasant fleshiness towards the finish. This is fine, if not the best Larrivet Haut-Brion that I have tasted.
