2016 Haut-Brisson, St-Émilion

SKU #1401727 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This has great clarity of ripe red plums and mulberries, as well as attractive, floral nuances, leading to a very focused feel on the palate that offers a succulent and fluid array of ripe red fruit that holds fresh and even. Ever so fine tannins. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

92 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Blended of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Haut-Brisson is quite oaky on the nose with underlying plum preserves, baked cherries and dried mulberries plus wafts of bay leaves, damp soil and cigars. Medium to full-bodied, it has firm, rounded tannins, seamless freshness and plenty of muscular fruit going long in the finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Haut Brisson is terrific. Plush and succulent in the glass, with tons of textural intensity, the 2016 has so much to offer. Dark red cherry, chocolate, mocha and spice all build in a beautifully textured, racy Saint-Émilion that is already quite delicious. The 2016 has really come together quite nicely over the course of its aging. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

91 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Château Haut Brisson was outstanding on both occasions I was able to taste it. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc brought up in 35% new oak, this medium to full-bodied, plump, sexy Saint-Emilion offers loads of spiced black fruits, truffle, tobacco, and incense. It has rock solid ripeness, a rounded texture, and delivers pleasure. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

90 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Blackcurrant and dark fruit notes with a hint of quality oak. Palate appetising with fresh grainy tannins on the finish. Lovely balance. (JL) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark 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) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

K&L Notes

90 points Neal Martin for Vinous: "The 2016 Haut-Brisson has a classy bouquet of dark-chocolate-tinged black fruit, white pepper and a touch of red plum. The well-balanced palate is focused and direct, featuring supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity and a judicious dash of spice toward the finish. Drink this well-crafted Saint-Émilion over the next decade." (01/2019)
