1957 Chateau Haut-Bages Liberal Pauillac

Wine Description

(From 2005 Vintage) Very aromatic showing blackberry and currant aromas, with some licorice. Full bodied with supersilky tannins and a rich, decadent, fruity finish. Caresses the palate. Stylish and opulent.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2008 Vintage) The moment we tasted Ch. Haut-Bages Libéral we were blown away by itssheer class and star quality. Having tasted in Pauillac all day, this was likea breath of fresh air and was, by a mile, the first wine to make our list ofTop 10 Value wines to buy. With a beautiful mix of red and black fruit, thiswas complex, intense and powerful with a classic cedar nose, fine eleganttannins and chocolate complexity. Rounded off by a lovely juicy finish andsmooth fruit, this blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot remains oneof our favourite wines of the vintage.
