CHATEAU HAUT BRISSON
Situated in Saint-Émilion, Haut-Brisson was purchased by Peter Kwok in 1997. Kwok’s
agenda was to elevate the quality of the estate’s output, and he immediately set about
expanding the holding from 8 hectares to 12.77 hectares, introduced a small-production
high-end offering from the best parcels and barrels, and moved to organic viticulture
(certified in 2010).
The blend is 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet
Franc, and the vines are close to 30 years old. Today Château Haut-Brisson is
managed by Kwok’s daughter Elaine. These attractively priced, rich, fruity wines
deserve attention from consumers looking for good value.
