What The Critics Say
90-93/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
“The 2018 Haut Brisson is an absolutely gorgeous wine. Radiant and plush, with striking fruit density, the 2018 captures all the best the vintage has to offer. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, chocolate, dried flowers and menthol build in a creamy, sensual Saint-Émilion loaded with near and medium-term appeal. Haut Brisson is especially fine in 2018. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, with new oak at 35%. Tasted three times.“
92-94/100 Wine Cellar Insider
"Soft, silky and juicy with sweetness, lift and elegance, give this a few years of aging to allow for all the complexity to develop. The wine was produced from a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc."
90-92/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Lisa Perrotti-Brown
"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."
