2020 Château Haut-Brisson En Primeur

Released this afternoon alongside sibling-estates Enclos Tourmaline and Château Tour Saint-Christophe, Château Haut-Brisson is one of our early 'picks' of the vintage. This Grand Cru St.-Émilion benefits from the same investment and passionate focus on quality as Peter Kwok's other estates, but at just £228 per dozen in bond, it is superb value. 

We loved the cask sample we tasted, which had the most intense black forest fruits, crushed rock on the nose and palate and vibrant acidity...just bursting with energy and life.  Suckling awards it 94-95 points, a great score at this price level.
