Download Complete Winemaker Notes

Pauillac de Haut‐Bages Libéral is the second wine of Château Haut‐Bages Liberal. It is made from the young vines, which have less than 15 years old. This wine takes advantage of all the tools and the know‐how of a 5th Classified Growth. It is an elegant illustration of the property which today is run by Claire Villars. She had undertaken a complete overhaul of the winemaking process and a new approach for vineyard management, with heightened respect for the environment. This expresses the excellent terroir of Château Haut‐Bages Liberal.
