Château Haut-Brisson 2014 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. On the palate the attack is fruity with beautiful hints of strawberry jam. The wine presents a very nice concentration, perfectly controlled, with silky tannins still present at this point but without harshness. A good balance between sweetness and power, the wood is well-integrated. The finish has considerable fruit with a very light minerality.
Blend: 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc.
James Suckling 92 points - "Quite a mellow and traditional-style St.-Émilion, but in the positive sense. A solid tannic base supports the moderately rich body, and the tannins are quite sophisticated on the dry finish."
