2009 Haut-Brisson "La Reserve", Saint-Émilion

SKU #1355008 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The limited production 2009 Haut-Brisson Reserve ratchets up everything, from the color (inky purple) to the aromatics, flavor profile, and long, full-bodied finish. This is a brilliant St.-Emilion that tastes like it came from one of the great terroirs on the St. Emilion plateau. It is also structured and unevolved, and will benefit from 5-7 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030. (RP)  (12/2011)

93 points James Suckling

 Such gorgeous fruit, with extremely polished tannins and a persistent finish. The new oak comes out at the finish, but it should melt together with age. A joy to taste now but better in 2016.  (6/2013)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
