Tasting Notes from the Curator

Le Haut-Médoc de Haut-Bages Libéral is an epitome of Bordeaux’s gravtastic complexity, serenading the senses with an elaborate aromatic profile that evolves as it breathes. Imagine the deep, dark allure of blackcurrants, plums, and the subtle tartness of blackberries intertwined with raspberries and cranberries. Not merely content with its fruit notes, the bouquet unfurls an array of floral notes such as peonies, violets, and rosehips, lending a delicate softness to its robust character. Herbal undertones of thyme and oregano, along with the smokiness of tobacco leaves and the warmth of spices like vanilla and wood spice, illuminate the wine’s multidimensional nature.

On the palate, the wine offers a rich tapestry of tastes. Initial flavors of juicy blackberries and plums are enriched by black cherry and cranberry undertones, creating a harmonious dance of sweetness and acidity. A secondary wave introduces subtler notes of menthol and bell pepper, coupled with the comforting earthiness of crushed rocks and sage. The tertiary layers bring forward hints of florals and spices, culminating in a sophisticated finish of leather-like smoothness.

Texturally, this wine is an ode to balance with its medium-plus body, well-integrated tannins that are both smooth and slightly chalky, and a crisp acidity that prolongs the experience with a long, elegant finish. This is a wine that not only speaks of its origins but does so with eloquence and grace, making it a stellar representative of the Haut-MĂ©doc lineage.

    An Estate with a Legacy

Château Haut-Bages Libéral, the esteemed estate behind Le Haut-Médoc de Haut-Bages Libéral, bears a legacy that dates back to the 18th century, when it was named after the Bages plateau and the distinguished Libéral family.

In the 1980s, the estate underwent a significant transformation under the stewardship of the Villars family, particularly under the leadership of Claire Villars Lurton. Claire’s commitment to organic and biodynamic viticulture has infused a modern, sustainability-focused philosophy into the estate’s time-honored traditions. This evolution has not only improved the vineyard’s health but also enhanced the wine’s expression of its unique terroir.

Located in the heart of Pauillac, near the renowned Château Latour, Château Haut-Bages Libéral enjoys a privileged position within Bordeaux’s wine landscape. Its proximity to the Gironde estuary provides a unique microclimate that significantly contributes to the distinctiveness of its wines, ensuring that every bottle of Le Haut-Médoc de Haut-Bages Libéral carries the hallmark of meticulous craftsmanship and a rich heritage.
