94 points James Suckling

"This is very linear and tight with beautifully crafted tannins that give a long, intense and energetic finish. The mid-palate is tight and poised. "(5/2021)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

"Coming from dismal yields of 12.5 hectoliters per hectare, the 2020 Château Haut-Brisson is shockingly good and another brilliant Right Bank that's going to represent a tremendous value. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc brought up in just 35% new French oak, it has a sensational perfume of red and black cherries, leafy tobacco, chocolate, lead pencil shavings, and liquid violet-like nuances. Full-bodied, concentrated, and flawlessly balanced, it has ultra-fine tannins, remarkable purity, and a great finish."

94 points Vinous

"The 2020 Haut-Brisson is every bit as captivating as it was in barrel. Succulent dark cherry fruit, plum, mocha, licorice, espresso and spice are beautifully amplified. Creamy and resonant, with terrific depth, Haut-Brisson is super-expressive today. It is a harmonious Saint-Émilion to drink over the next 15-20 years. Terrific. Best after 2026."

91 Decanter

"Deep ruby red, damson and blackberry autumnal fruits on the palate. A more subdued and serious feel than some. Powerful overall with liquorice and black chocolate, touches of reduction. Almost over concentrated but it lifts up on the finish."

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Composed of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2020 Haut-Brisson has an alcohol of 13.8% and a pH of 3.65. It is being aged in French oak barrels, 35% new. Deep garnet-purple in color, it hits the ground running with open-knit notes of baked black cherries, mulberries and preserved plums, plus suggestions of chargrill, star anise and tar, with a touch of menthol. The medium-bodied palate practically quivers with tension, matched by a firm, grainy texture to support the intense crunchy black fruits, finishing long and savory. (LPB)" (5/2021)
