Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) Lively, with good lift and floral aromatics followed by a fresh mix of red cherry, black cherry, red currant and black currant. Nice tarry edge creeps in on the finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) Probably the finest Haut-Bages Liberal since the 1982, this beautifully rich wine has an inky purple color, a big, sweet kiss of creme de cassis, incense, some background spicy oak and forest floor. Its gorgeous fruit, full-bodied opulence, impressive purity, expansive texture and broad, savory finish.

Expert Reviews
  • Decanter
    Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Deep colour with a little brown fade. Perfumed nose, a touch herbaceous. Good, deep, brooding on the palate, with true Pauillac intensity. Very Cabernet Sauvignon; a true claret.
