Château Larrivet Haut-Brion

Domain: Château Larrivet Haut-Brion

15 kilometres from Bordeaux, in the southern part of the appellation, Larrivet-Haut-Brion's vines stand alongside those of Haut-Bailly. The property's name reflects the numerous changes that have taken place over the course of the past two centuries. Initially entitled Château de Canolle, then La Rivette, it took the name of Château Haut-Brion-Larrivet in 1874. The property belonged successively to a Bordeaux merchant, and then to some true Bordeaux lovers, the sons of Théodore Conseil, who developed the estate. At that time there were 50 hectares of vines. In the 1930s, suffering from the effects of the economic crisis, production was almost wiped out. In 1949, it took its current name, Château Larrivet Haut-Brion, and it was thanks to Christine and Philippe Gervoson that the property was restored, with the repurchase of the original plots. Following substantial investment, the wines' quality was gradually re-established. Since 1996, it has seen a succession of fine vintages that give full expression to the terroir: Larrivet Haut-Brion's vineyard is planted on clay soil consisting of sand and iron-rich clay. The property has been managed by Bruno Lemoine, who oversees both its administration and its wine production, since 2007.
