CHATEAU HAUT BAGES LIBERAL, 2012, PAUILLAC 75cl

$230.00

2012 - 5eme Cru Classe

Haut-Bages Liberal is one of the least known Pauillac estates but produces exemplary clarets. The 29-hectare property is superbly sited in the south of the Pauillac appellation between Chateau Latour and both Pichon Baron and Comtesse Lalande. The vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon 80%, Merlot 17%, Petit Verdot 3%) lie on deep gravel beds over limestone. The wines are matured in oak barriques (40% new) for 16-18 months. Since Claire Villars has been at the helm, the wines have become deeper in colour and more concentrated, with notable depth of fruit.
