Pin It

Château Larrivaux is run by Berangère Tesseron, the wife of Basile Tesseron of 4th Growth Château Lafon Rochet.

Larrivaux has been in existence since the late 16th century, and has been run by the women of the family throughout the generations.

The wine has a particular degree of finesse and elegance, which could lead some to call it feminine — which just makes sense, considering the château’s history.

87-88 This stylish, elegant Haut-Médoc offers up aromas of spice box, black currants, and cherries in its medium-bodied, easy-going personality. Consume it over the next decade.

89-91 This has a fine crisp dark brambly nose: good definition with hints of black olive tapenade and a touch of smoke. The palate is medium bodied with a lovely, slightly “digestif” entry, good acidity, very well balanced with a fine, quite racy finish. Very fine.
