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.
