The structure and elegance of a red wine from Pauillac
The Libéral family has owned Château Haut-Bages Libéral since the beginning of the 18th century. Over time, these fine connoisseurs have brought together the best terroirs of Pauillac. Today, this Pauillac Classified Growth is the property of the Villars family, who acquired it in 1983 and revived in Château Haut-Bages Libéral the luster of yesteryear. The family has invested in new winemaking equipment and has converted the cultivation of the vineyard to sustainable viticulture.
Château Haut-Bages Libéral is an organically produced wine which will soon convert to biodynamics. The 30 hectares of vines are planted in Gunzian Garonne gravel on a clay-limestone subsoil.
Vinification and ageing
The vinification was carried out on a plot-by-plot basis, accompanied by pump-overs and vertical pressing. The 16-month ageing took place in 40% in new oak barrels, 40% in second-fill barrels and 20% in amphorae.
Freshness, power and elegance are the key words to describe the Château Haut-Bages Libéral 2020, which seduces with its refined tannins and its great ageing potential.
