Wine Advocate: 92
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 crme 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.
Vinous: 92
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-milion. For my palate, the 2016 is on the edge, but it skirts that line nicely. Michel Rolland is the consultant. Tasted two times.
James Suckling: 95
Soft and velvety wine with blackberry, blueberry and raspberry character. Full body, a dense center palate and a long and pure finish. Another winner.
