Deep ruby with terracotta bricking around the rim. Clean with aromas of sweet currants, under growth, leather and tobacco. Medium bodied, with a core of fine flavours of crushed flowers, cassis, sous bois, and leather. High acid lends great backbone. This is more elegant than the Saint Pierre (as it should be) and the tannins are less powerful but show all the minerality of Pauillac. The core of fruit will give this longer in the bottle but is delicious now. Classic Pauillac. SEBASTIAN ZOTTI, PWS

An opaque purple color and a sweet, woodsy, smoky, cassis-scented nose characterize this medium-bodied, moderately tannic wine with excellent definition and richness. This well-made Haut-Bages-Liberal should turn out to be one of this property's finest efforts over recent years. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2017.
