About the Wine
Peter Kwok, born in Vietnam, was for many years a renowned banker and finances expert in China. He arrived and established in France due to his love and passion for this culture and brought his children with him.
Peter managed to see his great love for France materialize in form of a 750ml bottle. He believes that with a combination of excellent terroir, the right equipment, the best workers and tons of patience, an exceptional wine can be made. And we agree!
Château Haut Brisson was the first vineyard to belong to the prestigious group: Vignobles K from Peter Kwok and his children Elaine, Karen and Howard. Located on the Right Bank of Bordeaux in the Saint-Emillion Grand Cru appellation, Château Haut-Brisson has a great terroir with soils made of clay and limestone, fine brown sands and gravel of coarse sands.
Vignobles K is a family business established in 2014 and its formed by 7 vineyards located in some of the best Bordeaux appellations: Saint-Emilion, Pomerol, Lalande-de-Pomerol, Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux. Not bad!
The winemaker is a born and raised Basque named Jerome Aguirre. He began his winemaking experience in his homeland and worked with Jean-Claude Berrouet's (former winemaker at Château Petrus and Château Trotanoy).
Jerome has enological experience in Australia and in some of the best Bordeaux appellations. He also participated in the 2010 vintage of Chateau La Violette which had 100 pts. From the Wine Advocate. Since 2012 he has been part of Peter Kwok's team as Chief Winemaker and in addition to this, he has his own family estate called Château Haut Musset in Lalande-de-Pomerol.

A terrific Saint-Emilion in the making, the 2022 Château Haut-Brisson excels in the vintage. Giving up lots of smoky red and black fruits, graphite, and leather on the nose, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a layered, nicely balanced mouthfeel, quality tannins, and outstanding length. ~92-94 JD
