Chateau Haut-Brisson was the first property acquired by Peter Kwok and his daughter Elaine in 1997. At the time of purchase, 8 ha surrounded the house. Today, this chateau of 20 ha is located on the limestone plateau of Saint-Etienne-de-Lisse and the gravelly hilltops of Saint-Sulpice de Faleyrens. The diversity of terroirs, combined with vines of an average age of 30 years, allows us to produce wines at optimum maturity that ex- presses the terrior.

Blended of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Haut-Brisson is quite oaky on the nose with underlying plum preserves, baked cherries and dried mulberries plus wafts of bay leaves, damp soil and cigars. Medium to full-bodied, it has firm, rounded tannins, seamless freshness and plenty of muscular fruit going long in the finish. 5,000 cases produced. Drink Date: 2019-2034.

Bramble, black cherry, red currant and damson plum fruit flavors combine into a juicy and energetic core, while light dried anise, rooibos tea and mineral notes skitter through for added range. Has chalky minerality for spine and fresh acidity driving all the elements along. Best from 2021 through 2033. 5,000 cases made.
