CHATEAU HAUT BRISSON ST EMILION GRAND CRU 2016
James Suckling 94-95 points
Soft and velvety wine with blackberry, blueberry and raspberry character. Full body, a dense
center palate and a long and pure finish. Another winner.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90-92 points
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 cr̬me 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.
