Château Haut‑Brisson

Château Haut-Brisson was the first property acquired by Peter Kwok and his daughter Elaine in 1997. At the time of purchase, 8 ha surrounded the house. Today, this chateau of 20 ha is located on the limestone plateau of Saint-Etienne-de-Lisse and the gravelly hilltops of Saint-Sulpice de Faleyrens. The diversity of terroirs, combined with vines of an average age of 30 years, allows us to produce wines at optimum maturity that expresses the terrior. The vineyards of Château Haut-Brisson is oriented southwards, and benefits from ideal exposures of sun.

In 2005, we implemented organic farming processes and the wines are certified organic* since 2010. With the acquisition of new parcels at the end of 2015, the property restarts the organic farming conversion for the years 2016, 2017 and 2018.

 

The recently constructed cellar is adapted to accomodate the different phases of expansion of the vineyard. It is equipped with thermo-regulated vats of small capacity, allowing vinification by plot which gives us more control.

*Agriculture Biologique or AB is an official certification for organic farming in France, which is awarded after rigorous and repeated inspections of the land, production techniques and flora and fauna of the vineyard to ensure that the vineyard meets stringent European standards of organic wine production. AB is a sign of sustainable farming, respect of natural balances, biodiversity and products of high quality whose production have minimal impact on the environment and aim for optimal human health.
