A rich and powerful fine wine from Pauillac

The estate

The Liberal family has owned Chateau Haut-Bages Liberal since the beginning of the 18th century. Over time, these fine connoisseurs have brought together the best terroirs of Pauillac. Today, this Pauillac Classified Growth is the property of the Villars family who acquired it in 1983 and revived in Chateau Haut-Bages Liberal the luster of yesteryear. The family has invested in new winemaking equipment and has converted the cultivation of the vineyard to sustainable viticulture.

The vineyard

Chateau Haut-Bages Libéral is an organically produced wine which will soon convert to biodynamics. The 30 hectares of vines are planted in Gunzian Garonne gravel on a clay-limestone subsoil.

The vintage

The generally mild winter gave way to cool spring temperatures that slowed down the mineralization of the soil. The hot, dry summer helped the vines fight off mildew. The temperature difference between the days and nights allowed for a full development of the aromatic palette of the fruit. The harvested grapes had reached perfect maturity.

The blend

Cabernet sauvignon (80%), merlot (20%)

The winemaking

Manual harvest. Traditional vinification in concrete tanks. Plot selection.

The aging

16 months of aging in French oak barrels (40% new barrels).

The tasting

This great Bordeaux wine is ripe, rich and powerful. The Chateau Haut-Bages Libéral 2019 can be enjoyed young but can also reveal a nice potential for age.
