THE MERCHANT'S MARK
93+ / 100
The 2012 Chateau Larrivaux is a tremendous value! With 7 years bottle age it offers silky tannins and a fleshy texture. Dark berry and earth elements blend in a seamless experience. Currants and blackberries are harmoniously layered. And something you don't find in wines at this price, lasting acidity and balanced tannins. This is an excellent example of quality and value from Bordeaux.
90 / 100
"This ripe, fruity wine is developing a fine balance between fruit and structure. Its black currant flavors are bright, juicy and crisp, sustained by a core of dryness and delicious acidity. It will benefit from another year of age, so wait until late 2018 before drinking."
