Soft and velvety wine with blackberry, blueberry and raspberry character. Full body, a dense center palate and a long and pure finish. Another winner.
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. (NM)
Deep crimson. Scented and peppery on the nose and then gently sweet on the palate. Much less drying than most. Charming! 17/20 points. (JR)
The 2016 Haut Brisson is juicy and flamboyant, with succulent red cherry and plum fruit pushed forward. A wine with striking inner sweetness and no hard edges, the 2016 will appeal most to readers who enjoy the opulent, full-throttle side of Saint-Émilion. (AG)
