K&L Notes

Robert Parker once called Haut-Brisson "one of St-Emilion's most attractive over-performers," and "generally available for a realistic price." The 2015 is no different. Our team thought it offered superb value for the vintage and is one of the best 25 buys under $30. This is also Haut-Brisson's first vintage without a reserve wine, making it one of the strongest releases yet.

    Barrel tasted April 9, 2016: Dark color, aromatic fresh nose, tons of fruit in the mouth with a round velvety texture. The finish is long and spicy. This wine shows great finesse and opulence. Excellent!

    This wine has an intensely aromatic nose of cassis and dark raspberry with a mouthful of juicy fruit balanced by great acidity. The tannins were gritty and chewy on the finish, and the flavors were overall fresh and satisfying. We all thought this was a great deal at the chateau, and I'm excited that value wines like the Haut Brisson are part of the 2015 vintage en primeur launch. A case of this is likely going into my cellar as well.

    Surely one of the great values of the 2015 vintage. 90% Merlot and 10% Cab Franc. There is no longer a Haut Brisson Reserve-this is the only wine they make. No wonder it is so good. Fabulous black fruit aromas that follow to the palate. Plenty of structure for aging but a sweet core of fruit. All this for under $25? Can't miss.
    Drink from 2018 to 2025

    Beautiful red cherry fruit with cinnamon notes and hints of spice. The fruit here has a crunchy feel because of how fresh it is thanks to the good acidity. The finish is a tad exotic with notes of mocha and oatmeal on the finish.
    Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2025
