Chateau Larrivet-Haut-Brion 2003

87 points

Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux, France. 12.5%

Fun enjoyable.  Showing some of the dusty ripe grapes of 2003, low acid plus a rather alarming degree of brown on the rim.  But the touch of exotic oak is well handled.

Drink now.  Not very intellectually demanding.

PS This estate has nothing to do with Ch. Haut Brion, indeed is located at the other end of Pessac-Leognan.
