JAMES SUCKLING: "Very bright and clear with dark chocolate and citrus. Medium body. Lightly chewy, fine tannins. Well-structured. Vivid."
JEB DUNNUCK: "A terrific Saint-Emilion in the making, the 2022 Château Haut-Brisson excels in the vintage. Giving up lots of smoky red and black fruits, graphite, and leather on the nose, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a layered, nicely balanced mouthfeel, quality tannins, and outstanding length."
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, forward, soft and fruity, with a chalky nuance in the plummy finish. The wine blends 95% Merlot with 5% Cabernet Franc. Drink from 2025-2038."
THE WINE ADVOCATE: "A blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2022 Haut-Brisson reveals aromas of dark berries, spices and licorice, followed by a medium to full-bodied, supple and succulent palate framed by powdery tannins and concluding with a long, saline finish. It's a successful wine from the Vignobles K portfolio."
WEINWISSER: "Sattes schwarzbeeriges Bouquet, Herzkirsche, Schokopastillen und Brasiltabak. Am kompakten Gaumen mit weicher Textur, engmaschigem Tanningerüst und mittlerem Körper. Im gebündelten Finale verschlankt sich der Wein und endet mit dunkler Mineralik und Wacholder, aufgerundet. 2028 – 2042."
DECANTER: "Vivid purple colour, rich and vibrant in the glass. Aromas of dark black fruit and opulent perfumed scents. Juicy and supple, tannins are prominent but so is acidity giving a push pull of tension and fruit forwardness. You can taste the sun kissed fruit in the glass, very slightly jammy, but it keeps a sense of liveliness and freshness too giving a drinkable expression. Really quite a joyful and fun expression with bite and soft liquorice spicing. Tasted twice. Yield: 44hl/ha. 3.60pH. 35% new barrels."
