Château Haut-Bages Libéral Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2007

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.

Château Haut-Bages Libéral:
When the Chateau came on the market in 1982, the great names of the Medoc region fought to buy it. The owners of Chasse Spleen were to become the proud owners.

Woodsy, herbal, sweet wood swimming in sweet, plummy fruit – powerful and yet soft with well integrated structure blanketed but rich, slightly extracted feeling fruit, it’s really lovely with just enough rigid structure to keep it from getting cloying, tight on the finish but with sneaky length and excellent balance, a crowd pleaser (91-92)

Tiefes Rubinrot mit lila Farbreflexen, süsser Duft von Crème de Cassis, Lakritze, Tapenade und Gewürzen. Der Gaumen besticht durch eine Mittel- bis Vollmundigkeit. Mit seidigen Tanninen und wenig Säure ein ausdrucksstarker Wein.

Tasting Notes:

The 2007 vintage has given elegant wines with cabernet sauvignon of high quality. The wine shows some red and black berries fruits. A nice structure and freshness. The tannins are getting mellow.
