Description

94    James Suckling
“This has great clarity of ripe red plums and mulberries, as well as attractive, floral nuances, leading to a very focused feel on the palate that offers a succulent and fluid array of ripe red fruit that holds fresh and even. Ever so fine tannins. Try from 2022.” (2/2019)

92    Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Blended of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Haut-Brisson is quite oaky on the nose with underlying plum preserves, baked cherries and dried mulberries plus wafts of bay leaves, damp soil and cigars. Medium to full-bodied, it has firm, rounded tannins, seamless freshness and plenty of muscular fruit going long in the finish.” (11/2018)

“The 2016 Château Haut Brisson was outstanding on both occasions I was able to taste it. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc brought up in 35% new oak, this medium to full-bodied, plump, sexy Saint-Emilion offers loads of spiced black fruits, truffle, tobacco, and incense. It has rock solid ripeness, a rounded texture, and delivers pleasure. Drink it any time over the coming 15-20 years.” (2/2019)

90-92   Neal Martin
“The 2016 Haut Brisson is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc was cropped at 42 hectoliters per hectare picked from 5-15 October, matured in 35% new oak. It has a rich and slightly heady bouquet with intense black cherry and crème de cassis notes, although I find that the Tour St Christophe, which is also owned by Peter Kwok, has far more detail. The palate is full-bodied with dense ripe tannin, quite intense with a touch of dried blood infusing the black fruit with a structured, gently grippy finish. I would just like to see more finesse come through once this is bottle.” (4/2017)
