“Aromas of blueberry and chocolate with some walnut and blackberry, following through to a medium-bodied palate with a solid core of fruit, creamy tannins and a flavorful finish. Nice cedar and sandalwood undertones. Refined and polished. Try after 2024.” (3/2021)

“Based on 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Château Haut Brisson is a pretty, floral wine delivering crunchy red and blue fruits, lots of spring flower and damp earth aromatics, medium to full-bodied richness, and present, firm, yet ripe and polished tannins. It’s beautifully done, with an exotic, age-worthy vibe, it’s going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for two decades.” (3/2021)

90-92    Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“The 2018 Haut-Brisson comes from Vignonet and Monbousquet in Saint-Étienne-de-Lisse, from the lieu-dit Laroque. It is blended of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc and has 14.6% alcohol. It is aging in 35% new, 35% one-year-old and 30% two-year-old barrels for an anticipated 18 months. It has a deep garnet-purple color and comes charging out of the glass with baked black cherries, warm blueberries and preserved plums with touches of pencil shavings, kirsch and chargrilled meat plus a waft of Indian spices. Full-bodied, the generously fruited palate has a lovely plush texture and just enough freshness, finishing with a menthol lift.” (4/2019)

90    James Molesworth for Wine Spectator
“This red sports a lively mix of blackberry and black currant preserve notes contrasted by savory and tobacco details. Everything knits nicely through the anise-accented finish. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2028.” (3/2021)

90    Jane Anson for Decanter
“Dark fruits, a little sombre right now, but with plenty of juice and a slate feeling keeping interest through the finish. Drinking Window 2023 – 2034.” (4/2019)
