Winemaker's Notes:

The name of Château Haut-Bages Liberal has two roots. The LIBERAL family ran the property in the early eighteenth century. Brokers from father to son, they sold the harvest in the Netherlands and Belgium. Their name adjoining to the topographical designation, earned them to be invited worldwide to the table of political parties of the same name. Over time, these connoisseurs gathered the best soils of Pauillac. Thus, this 5th Classified Growth in 1855 now has half of its vineyards adjacent to Château Latour and the other half behind Château Pichon Baron, on the heights of the locality "Bages", a large plateau in the south of Pauillac. The property would regain his youth when, in 1960, the Cruse family, owner of Château Pontet Canet, another 5th Classified Growth in Pauillac, acquired the property. The Cruse would launch an extensive program of replanting the vineyard. However, it was in 1983 at the arrival of the Villars family that Château Haut-Bages Libéral really recovered its former glory. Today, the property is run by Claire VILLARS-LURTON. She undertook an overhaul of the tool of winemaking and she directs the vineyard management to a sustainable viticulture.

Tasting Notes:

The wine has a fine and elegant aromatic profile. It blends subtle hints of cocoa beans, black fruit and a floral touch. Nice aftertaste. The tannins are still present, but the wine has a beautiful structure both pure and right. The nose is very fine with a flavor profile of great elegance. It blends hints of cocoa beans to floral and fruity notes. Even if it is still closed today, the wine has a beautiful structure and a long finish.
