    Château Haut-Bages Libéral

    About Château Haut-Bages Libéral

    Drawing its name from the Liberal family, well-known negociants in Bordeaux and owners of other properties on the Left Bank who purchased the estate in the 18th century, Château Haut-Bages-Libéral is located on the hills of Bages, a tiny area between Pauillac and Saint Julien which makes up the second part of its name. From the 1960s onwards, it was managed by the Cruse family who also owned Château Pontet-Canet, and for a  few years, wines of Château Haut-Bages-Libéral were actually made at Château Pontet-Canet. Château Haut-Bages-Libéral was then sold to the Taillan group in 1983, which owned several properties including Château Ferrière and Château de Camensac and has remained under the same ownership till today.

     

    The vines of Château Haut-Bages-Libéral span over 30 hectares, half of which is located in Bages with other parcels located near highly regarded estates like Château Latour and Château Pichon Baron. Certified organic since the 2019 vintage, the wines of Château Haut-Bages-Libéral continue to improve, delivering excellent value.

    Haut-Bages Liberal 2019 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (AG) (94+)

    The 2019 Haut-Bages Libéral is a gorgeous wine from Claire Lurton, even if it has closed down a bit post-bottling. Deep and translucent in feel, the 2019 gradually reveals hints of crushed red berry fruit, mint, spice, rose petal and orange peel. I especially admire the overall energy and aromatic presence. All the 2019 needs is a few years to fully come together.

    Haut-Bages Liberal 2021 (12x75cl)

    Vinous (AG) (94-96)

    The 2021 Haut-Bages Libéral is one of the best wines I have ever tasted from Claire Lurton. Dense, powerful and explosive, with dazzling intensity Haut-Bages Libéral races across the palate, offering up an enticing mélange of ripe red-fleshed fruit, blood orange, cedar and spice. Bright acids lend vibrancy throughout a Pauillac I won't soon forget tasting. Haut-Bages Libéral is one of my early favorites on the Left Bank in 2021. Yields were 30 hectoliters per hectare versus the more typical 40 or so, not a bad result at all for the year given the biodynamic farming practices in place.
