Notes
The 2021 Haut-Bages Libéral contains the highest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon ever, the Merlot having been affected by the mildew. Matured in 40% new oak, 40% one-year-old barrels and 20% amphorae, this is curiously Margaux-like, almost more than Durfort-Vivens! Floral and elegant, opening nicely with aeration without pushing the accelerator hard. The palate is medium-bodied and very smooth in texture, maybe just needing a little more tension, but there is decent weight and a cohesive, chalky finish. Very fine, though I lean more toward the Durfort-Vivens this year.

Château Haut Bages Liberal

Château Haut Bages Liberal

The vineyards of this fifth growth property are situated immediately next to those of Château Latour. After a period of under-exploitation, owner and winemaker Claire Villars has worked hard to raise the quality of the wines produced and the fruits of her efforts are visible in that they are gradually regaining the following they enjoyed 100 years ago.
