    The balance of a refined Pauillac

    A Fifth Great Classified Growth of 1855 in Pauillac, the Chateau Haut-Bages Liberal is a distinguished estate on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region because of the elegance and refinement of its wines. The owner, Claire Villars Lurton, works with conviction and passion to preserve the style of the estate. Vintage after vintage, the wines continued to be recognized for their quality and precision.

    The estate is in the process of getting its organic agriculture certification with the aim of achieving certification in biodynamics. Chateau Haut-Bages Liberal oversees a 30-hectare vineyard with an exceptional terroir located on the famous Bages plateau that rests on Garonne gravel soil dating back to the Gunz Ice Age.

    The frosts that hit the southern part of the Medoc vineyards at the end of April 2017 spared the Pauillac vineyards due to the protective role of the river, which helps regulate weather. The berries reached the perfect stage of ripeness to have an ideal tannin-acidity balance while maintaining great aromatic freshness.

    A vintage that highlights pure fruit, the Chateau Haut-Bages Liberal 2017 has a beautiful aromatic freshness from the Cabernet Sauvignon that dominates the blend (72%). On the palate, there are structured tannins with a dense texture that reveals the presence of Merlot (28%). Balanced and elegant, the Chateau Haut-Bages Liberal 2017 promises to be a Pauillac with a lively and distinctive character.
