CHÂTEAU HAUT-BAGES-LIBÉRAL, PAUILLAC
With vineyards neighboring Latour and Pichon Baron, there’s no doubt Haut-Bages-Libéral is located among some of the most prized real estate in all of Bordeaux. Yet unlike some of its more iconic Pauillac neighbors, the estate remains an incredible value considering its price-points are regularly under $100 a bottle. A historic classified property, Haut-Bages-Libéral is now overseen by renowned consultant Eric Boissenot, whose clients include first growths Lafite, Latour, Margaux and Mouton Rothschild. With this pedigree, Haut-Bages-Libéral is a yearly overachiever that offers long-term ageing and won’t break the bank when purchased by the case. Today we’re featuring two stunning examples of the estate from two recent exceptional vintages, 2015 and 2018, that you can stock up on with up to 28% off!
The property includes 30 hectares of vineyards planted to 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot, with the winery itself located next to Pichon Lalande. The average age of the vines are nearly 40 years old, planted to mixed soils of gravel, chalk, clay and limestone. Now under the management of Claire Villars Lurton and the Lurton family, whose portfolio extends over 15 chateaux—including various classified growths throughout Bordeaux, the estate has quickly moved to environmentally sustainable winegrowing and winemaking practices. Without a doubt, this has led to extremely impressive recent vintages and critics are taking note.
For 2015, a “fabulous” vintage celebrated for its age-worthy reds (Antonio Galloni), the Haut-Bages-Libéral is a bold wine with incredible fruit intensity that was an Editior’s Choice for Wine Enthusiast. For 2018, another acclaimed vintage for Bordeaux, the Haut-Bages-Libéral is a “gorgeous Pauillac” that is “super-impressive right out of the gate,” making it an incredible companion for the more robust 2015 (AG). Both wines have amazing depth and persistence and will mature over the decades to come.
