Château Larrivet Haut Brion produces "exceptional vintage" wines from Graves in the Pessac-Léognan appellation in the Bordeaux region. The property was acquired in 1987 by the Gervoson family of the Andros group, who restored to this forgotten property its acclaim. In a few years, the property has grown from 17 hectares to 72 hectares of vines.
