Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JD 95
Jeb Dunnuck

Beautiful black cherry, graphite, roasted herb, and cedar pencil notes emerge from the 2019 Château Haut Brisson, an incredibly well-balanced, elegant, finesse-driven Saint-Emilion that brings beautiful richness and depth. It might be the finest wine I've tasted from this estate, and while it already offers pleasure, it will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and cruise for a solid two decades. It's impressive. Best after 2026.

JS 94
James Suckling
This is very opulent and rich with lots of ripe fruit. Full-bodied, layered and very rich. Dried fruit and black truffles. Very velvety and flavorful. Rich, yet fresh. Less new oak for this. 90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc. Barrel Sample: 93-94
D 91
Decanter
From the ever-reliable stable of Peter Kwok that has been really striking out to another level of quality over recent vintages. This has plenty of savoury fruit, more so than you might have found in this wine a few years ago. Subtle and understated at first, but it settles and opens in the glass. Touches of liquorice root well matched by cassis and blueberry, rolled up into a smoky finish. Lovely, supple, elegant.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2019 Haut-Brisson delivers aromas of dark berries, cherry preserve, baking chocolate and creamy new oak. Full-bodied, broad and fleshy, it's a generous, rather muscular Saint-Émilion, with plenty of ripe fruit and powdery structuring tannin. It's produced from a site near Monbousquet characterized by fine gravel soils. Best after 2021.

St-Émilion Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

Marked by its historic fortified village—perhaps the prettiest in all of Bordeaux, the St-Émilion appellation, along with its neighboring village of Pomerol, are leaders in quality on the Right Bank of Bordeaux. These Merlot-dominant red wines (complemented by various amounts of Cabernet Franc and/or Cabernet Sauvignon) remain some of the most admired and collected wines of the world.

St-Émilion has the longest history in wine production in Bordeaux—longer than the Left Bank—dating back to an 8th century monk named Saint Émilion who became a hermit in one of the many limestone caves scattered throughout the area.

Today St-Émilion is made up of hundreds of independent farmers dedicated to the same thing: growing Merlot and Cabernet Franc (and tiny amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon). While always roughly the same blend, the wines of St-Émilion vary considerably depending on the soil upon which they are grown—and the soils do vary considerably throughout the region.

The chateaux with the highest classification (Premier Grand Cru Classés) are on gravel-rich soils or steep, clay-limestone hillsides. There are only four given the highest rank, called Premier Grand Cru Classés A (Chateau Cheval Blanc, Ausone, Angélus, Pavie) and 14 are Premier Grand Cru Classés B. Much of the rest of the vineyards in the appellation are on flatter land where the soils are a mix of gravel, sand and alluvial matter.

Great wines from St-Émilion will be deep in color, and might have characteristics of blackberry liqueur, black raspberry, licorice, chocolate, grilled meat, earth or truffles. They will be bold, layered and lush.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
