- 95 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "This is the best Haut-Brisson ever showing ripe dark plums and chocolate on the nose, which is so seductive. The palate is all about the silky tannins and beautiful fruit. Full body, gorgeous fruit and a complex aftertaste. So precise and impressive. Texturally complete. Drink or hold."- 91-93 Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE: "Until the 2015 vintage, all the fruit from Château Haut Brisson came from down towards Château Teyssier; however, in 2013 Peter Kwok bought a parcel located on the limestone plateau in Saint-Etienne-de-Lisse, which obviously will impact and hopefully improve the quality. The 2015 Haut Brisson is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc cropped at 34 hl/ha and matured in 35% new oak. It has a potent, perfumed bouquet with violet-inked cassis and blueberry fruit that is very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This is a little more structured and classier than previous vintages, though there is some chocolaty oak on the finish that needs to be fully subsumed by the time it is bottled. Give this 2-3 years in bottle, because it is a very well-crafted Haut Brisson, though I think even better is to come."
- 91-93 Punkte WINE ENTHUSIAST: "Barrel Sample. The new wood flavors are strong here. They go with a minty character and bright acidity. The wine is dry and concentrated, with a firm core as well as juicy black fruits. It is beginning to balance well." - 92 Punkte VINOUS Antonio Galloni: "The sumptuous, racy 2015 Haut-Brisson has turned out beautifully. Super-ripe dark cherry, mocha, espresso, licorice, exotic spice and new leather meld together in this effortless, beautifully resonant Saint-Émilion. Readers should expect a bold, full-throttle style. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc."
- NEAL MARTIN: "The 2015 Haut Brisson has a very composed bouquet with redcurrant and cranberry fruit, nicely integrated oak and a touch of Earl Grey tea developing with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin on the entry, a solid structure here with a spine of black fruit laced with cedar and mint. Give this Saint-Émilion three years in bottle if possible just to soften and develop more complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2021 - 2033."
