Château Haut-Bages-Libéral is a winery in the Pauillac appellation of the Bordeaux region of France classified as one of eighteen 5èmes Crus (Fifth Growths) in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. The name Haut-Bages-Libéral is derived from the estate's location and historical owner, with Haut-Bages referring to its position at the top of the Bages plateau between Pauillac and St Julien and Libéral referring to the family who owned the estate during the 18th century.

The estate has three vineyards; the largest is adjacent to Château Latour, with a smaller plot down the road adjacent to Château Pichon-Lalande; the third plot is further inland, adjacent to Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste. The soil consists mainly of a deep bed of gravel over limestone affording drainage, with the varietal mix being approximately 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. The second wine is produced under the labels La Fleur de Haut-Bages-Libéral and La Chapelle de Bages.

Tasting Notes

Dense, dark garnet color, drawing on purple in its youth. The bouquet consists of black and red fruits, roasting, licorice and leather. A Beautiful representation of Pauillac – it is vigorous and tannic, which softens with age which allows the tannins to melt and give a nice and round structure.
