2006 Chateau Haut Bages Liberal, Pauillac
Vintage : 2006
Country : France
Region : Pauillac
1855 Grand Cru Classe – 5th Growth The chateau was founded in the 18th century by the Liberal family. Most of the wines produced here were exported to the Netherlands and Belgium. Half of the wines of the chateau are planted just next to the First Growth Chateau Latour.
Today, the winery is managed by Claire Villars Lurton. Under her management the estate has undergone complete renovation to organic and biodynamic vineyard management. The grounds of the chateau were fully renovated in 2018.
Château Haut-Bages Libéral is particularly well-located on a much coveted plateau in Bages. The vineyard has three plots that adjoin Latour, Pichon-Lalande and Grand Puy Lacoste. The soil consists of fine gravel. Most of the vineyard, which was replanted in the 1960s, produces wines that are now revealing their true character.
