For a 2018 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru that'll age brilliantly, it's hard to beat 94-point Haut Brisson. Wine Advocate called it, "chock-full of spicy black fruit preserves, framed by soft tannins and a racy backbone of freshness." A sensational 2018.

This 22 hectare St Emilion property has the same winemaking team as Enclos Tourmaline and La Tour St Christophe. It has a limestone terroir and is situated between L'If and Magrez Fombrauge. The vineyard is planted with 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc.

Until 1997, Château Haut Brisson was an 8-hectare estate in the Vignonet section of Saint Emilion. New owner Peter Kwok was keen to expand its vineyards and the range of terroir, so began to buy up vine parcels to make it up to the 22 hectares it has today. Judging by today's scores and the quality of the wine, Kwok purchased wisely and quality has soared. Today it is under the ownership of Stephane Schinazi and continues its stellar projection, with Michel Rolland as consultant. All its top grapes go into this wine (they no longer make La Réserve), ageing 30% of it in new French barriques, so as not to overwwhelm the fruit with oak notes. Now certified organic, with the aim of going biodynamic too, the 2018 is a magnificent wine.
