Château Haut Saint Brice, located in the commune of Saint Christophe des Bardes very close to Saint-Emilion, produces wines of distinctive personality.
The vineyard is in fact run by the team of the famous Château Pas de l'Âne which lavishes all the necessary care and attention on this superb Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. The soils of the plots are ideally suited to the Merlot but also to the Cabernet Franc grape variety which has a high proportion in the final blend of Château Haut Saint Brice. The Cabernet Franc complements the Merlot with its texture and exceptional finesse.
Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.
64% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc.
The wine comes with a very dark purple colour shot through with violet. The nose is dominated by aromas of ripe, almost jammy fruit. On the palate, the medium-bodied fruitiness comes through with smooth, well integrated tannins, leading to a long, harmonious and remarkably fine finish.
