There is nothing overdone in this chiseled, elegant cuvée made from organically grown and pampered Merlot. The balance is just right. Evoking blackberries, black currant, and a hint of cocoa, this would be the perfect wine to open the next time you cook steak.

Château Haut-Lariveau practices organic farming. The vineyards are worked by subsoiling, which aerates the earth and allows microorganisms to develop freely, which in turn helps nourish the vines. Grapes are hand harvested, de-stemmed, and sorted.

Natural fermentation with indigenous yeasts takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel or lined concrete tanks, and lasts three weeks. Parcels are vinified separately, then blended before élevage, which lasts 12-18 months in barriques, 25% of which are new. Finally, the wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.
