Château Haut-Bages Libéral 2012

Bordeaux - Pauillac - Red - 13° Château Haut-Bages Libéral Château Haut-Bages Libéral 2012 1045/12
  • Parker : 90
  • J. Robinson : 15
Haut-Bages Libéral, a Grand Cru Classé Pauillac, takes its name from the Bages plateau where part of its wines are located, and also from its first known owners, the Libéral family.The vines are planted on a truly excellent vineyard site which has been consolidated since the early 18th century from among the finest land in Pauillac. Haut-Bages Libéral's largest vineyard plot borders on Château Latour, the rest adjoins Château Pichon Baron Longueville, among other illustrious neighbours. The estate was acquired by the Cruse family in 1960, and then by the Villars family in 1983.The winemaking facilities were entirely renovated and modernised, and the replanted vines have since reached maturity. Haut-Bages Libéral is a full-bodied wine, both elegant and powerful. It has become quite famous for its fine balance and concentration.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Proprietor Claire Villers-Lurton administers this Pauillac classified-growth property. The 2012 reveals good, sweet tannin, blackcurrant fruit, a nice, soft underbelly, medium to full body, and outstanding concentration and purity. This property is always somewhat under the radar, but this is a very strong effort and should drink well for up to 20 years.
