2021 Château Haut-Brisson En Primeur

NOT YET RELEASED.

Château Haut-Brisson Grand Cru St-Émilion benefits from the same investment and passionate focus on quality as Peter Kwok's other estates, Enclos Tourmaline and Château Tour Saint-Christophe.  

2021 Notes:

"Blueberry and raspberry fruits have depth through the mid palate, and there is depth and pleasure to the body of the wine. Firm in its tannic frame, this has had a run of excellent vintages but struggles a little more with full ripeness in 2021.  88 points."  JaneAnson.com (JA) Apr 2022

"The 2021 Haut-Brisson is a real stand out. Dark cherry. plum., chocolate, licorice and spice all come through this mid-weight yet sumptuous Saint-Emilion. Expressive and vibrant, with terrific balance, Haut-Brisson is pretty hard to resist. It should drink well right out of the gate.  90-92 points."  Vinous.com (AG) Apr 2022

"The 2021 Haut-Brisson is the product of low yields, as this site was impacted by the April frosts. Delivering aromas of sweet berry, plums, licorice and orange rind, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and textural, with a fleshy core of fruit and powdery tannins that assert themselves on the finish.  90-92 points."  Wine Advocate (WK) Apr 2022
