Château Haut-Brisson 2015 has a deep red colour with violet glints.
From the outset the glass is filled with notes of graphite, balsamic and cinnamon.
The nose is intense with black fruit and floral aromas of orange blossom. The wood is still present but shows its charming side. In the mouth the attack is fruity on the palate with beautiful hints of strawberry jam.
The wine presents a very nice concentra- tion, perfectly controlled, with silky tan- nins still present at this point but without harshness. A good balance between sweet- ness and power, the wood is well-inte- grated.
The finish has considerable fruit with a very light minerality.

« This is the best Haut-Brisson ever showing ripe dark plums and chocolate on the nose, which is so seductive. The palate is all about the silky tannins and beautiful fruit. Full body, gorgeous fruit and a complex aftertaste. So precise and impressive. Texturally complete. Drink or hold. » James Suckling February 2018

« Aged for 16 months in barrels, 35% new, the 2015 Haut Brisson is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it opens with savory smoked meats, sauteed herbs and dusty soil scents plus touches of cedar chest and iron ore over a core of black cherries, red currants and warm plums. The medium-bodied palate is firm and crunchy with a chewy backbone, finishing with great freshness and length.» Lisa Pe- rotti-Brown February 2018

The 2015 Château Haut Brisson is a gem based on 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc that was raised in 35% new French oak. This medium to full-bodied, concentrated, intellectual 2015 offers a lifted, perfumed style in its cassis and assorted black/blue fruits, dried violets, Asian spice, and earthy, gravely, mineral-nuances. With solid mid-palate depth, a light, graceful tex- ture, fine tannin and impressive length, I’d give bottle 4-5 years of cellaring and enjoy over the following 10-15 years. It’s a beautiful wine. Tasted twice.

« TSpicy, smoky, floral and filled with ripe cherries, you also find incense, espresso and spice box notes. On the palate, the wine is soft, supple, and rich. The finish is all abut the juicy plums and a hint of bitter chocolate in the finish. The reduction in the amount of new, French oak barrels used for the aging process has added a lot more freshness and energy to the wine. The first vintage made with their new parcels, and they no longer produce a re- serve wine has created the best vintage of Haut Brisson ever made!» Jeff Leve May 2018
ANTONIO GALLONI - 92
« The sumptuous, racy 2015 Haut-Brisson has turned out beautifully. Super-ripe dark cherry, mocha, espresso, licorice, exotic spice and new leather meld together in this ef- fortless, beautifully resonant Saint-Émilion. Readers should expect a bold, full-throttle style. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.» Antonio Galloni February2018
WINE ENTHUSIAST - 91 / 93
« Barrel Sample. The new wood flavors are strong here. They go with a minty character and bright acidity. The wine is dry and concentrated, with a firm core as well as juicy black fruits. It is beginning to balance well.» - Roger Voss April 2016
