The limited production 2009 Haut-Brisson Reserve ratchets up everything, from the color (inky purple) to the aromatics, flavor profile, and long, full-bodied finish. This is a brilliant St.-Emilion that tastes like it came from one of the great terroirs on the St. Emilion plateau. It is also structured and unevolved, and will benefit from 5-7 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030.

Such gorgeous fruit, with extremely polished tannins and a persistent finish. The new oak comes out at the finish, but it should melt together with age. A joy to taste now but better in 2016.
