CHÂTEAU HAUT BAGES LIBERAL
2000 5ème Cru Classé Pauillac
|Grapes||Merlot, Cab Sauv, Cab Franc|
|Classification||5ème Cru Classé|
Regal, very deep colour, almost peppery concentration on the nose, thick-textured but tight, intense fruit squeezed in. Great intensity on the finish. The best Haut Bages Libéral we have tasted. L&S (Mar 2005)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
One of the best examples I have recently tasted from this estate, the saturated blue/purple Haut-Bages Liberal offers up notes of incense, licorice, pepper, and cassis. In the mouth, it is fat, juicy, with a certain succulence, low acidity, and ripe tannin. This may be the best wine produced by this estate in many a year. In spite of its precocious showing in my tastings, the wine actually needs 2-3 years of cellaring. 2005-2018. Rating: 89 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Sep 2011)
