For a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru that'll age brilliantly, it's hard to beat 94-point Haut-Brisson. Wine Advocate called it, "Full-bodied, broad and fleshy, it's a generous, rather muscular Saint-Émilion, with plenty of ripe fruit." A 2019 to snap up.
Full-bodied, velvety and fleshy, polished tannins and racy finish
Dark cherries, dark chocolate, herbal earthy note and creamy new oak
Until 1997, Château Haut-Brisson was an 8-hectare estate in the Vignonet section of Saint-Emilion. New owner Peter Kwok was keen to expand its vineyards and the range of terroir, so began to buy up vine parcels to make it up to the 18 hectares it has today. Judging by today's scores and the quality of the wine, Kwok purchased wisely and quality has soared. Today it is under the ownership of Stephane Schinazi and continues its stellar projection, with Michel Rolland as consultant. All its top grapes go into this wine (they no longer make La Réserve), ageing 30% of it in new French oak barriques, so as not to overwhelm the fruit with spice notes. Now certified organic and progressing towards biodynamic too, the fleshy 2019 is promises much.
