Pauillac - 5ème Cru Classé

The 2017 Haut-Bages Libéral is dense, pliant and nuanced, with plenty of red cherry, blood orange, smoke and spice notes that give the wine a decidedly exotic character. There is good depth and resonance to the 2017, if not quite the finesse or balance of the other wines in Claire Lurton's range. Haut-Bages Libéral is now a fully biodynamic property. (89-92) ANTONIO GALLONI

The 2017 Haut-Bages-Libéral offers blackberry and cedar on the nose, classically flaired and nicely defined though perhaps a little conservative in style compared to others. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin although it lacks a little density in the middle and tapers towards the finish with pencil shavings “liberally” sprinkled over the aftertaste. I suspect that this Pauillac will drink nicely over the next decade. Tasted at the UGC trade tasting. (89-91) NEAL MARTIN
