Château Haut-Bages Libéral 5ème Cru Classé, Pauillac

Château Haut-Bages Libéral 5ème Cru Classé, Pauillac

A blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon and 32% Merlot grown on the Garonne gravels; this 5th classified growth has half of its vineyards adjacent to Château Latour and the other half behind Château Pichon Baron, on the heights of the ‘Bages’, a large plateau in the south of Pauillac. The wine was aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 40% of them new. The 2008 vintage is characterised by its powerful structure, which is also fleshy with beautiful ripeness to the fruit; the tannins are integrated and elegant and the wine has a remarkable freshness.
