Chateau Haut-Bages Liberal `Grand Cru Classe` 2002 (1x 750ml), Pauillac

Description:

Pauillac A.C., 5eme Cru Classe

In 2001, the vagaries of the weather would have some consequences on the vineyard. It rained a lot during theWintery and in September, we had some sudden drop to temperatures. The consequences were a high

concentration of acidity and sugar with a record level of alcohol.

The Cabernet Sauvignon had a big potential despite a low extractability. The weather forecasts were not very enthusiastic three days prior the presumed date of the harvest but finally they took place under a sunny weather.The Merlot were very aromatic with a high concentration of alcohol. As for the Cabernet Sauvignon, the concentration in tannins was exceptional. The level of malic acid was high despite a very good maturation. The wines from the press were of high quality which had not been the case for many years.

Winery Tasting Notes

80% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot

A great classic of Bordeaux.

Winery Profile

The name of ChâteauHaut‐Bages Liberal hastwo roots. The LIBERAL family ran the property in the early eighteenth century. Brokersfromfatherto son,they sold the harvestin the  Netherlands and Belgium. Their name adjoining to the topographical designation, earned themto be invitedworldwide to the table of political parties of the same name. Over time, these connoisseurs gathered  the  best  soils  of  Pauillac. Thus, this  5th  Classified Growth in 1855 now has half of its  vineyards adjacent to Château Latour and the other half behind Château Pichon Baron, on the heights of the locality "Bages", a large plateau in the south of Pauillac. The property would regain his  youth  when, in  1960,  the  Cruse  family, owner  of Château Pontet Canet, another 5th  Classified  Growth in Pauillac, acquired the property. The Cruse would launch an extensive program of replanting the vineyard. However, it was in 1983 at the arrival of the Villars family that Château Haut‐Bages Libéral really recovered its former glory. Today, the property is  run  by  Claire VILLARS LURTON. She  undertook  an  overhaul  of  the tool of winemaking and she directs the vineyard management to a sustainable viticulture.
