Sold Out!

Chateau Haut-Bages Liberal, is a 5th-growth Pauillac estate producing wines of very fine quality at exceptional prices, given the Chateau's geographical location, in the south of the commune, close to Latour and the two Pichons (Baron & Comtesse). Half of the Haut-Bages Liberal vineyards are indeed adjacent to Latour.

Berry Bros & Rudd describes the wines as 'Exemplary clarets at very competetive prices'. Under the current regime of Claire Villars Lurton the wines have shown greater depth and richness of fruit.

Soils are composed of deep gravels on limestone-clay substrate. The average vine age is 35 years, composed of 75% cabernet and 25% merlot.

Beaune & Beyond, importer, notes: '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... elegant ... (modest) tannins show all the minerality of Pauillac. The core of fruit will give this longer in the bottle but is delicious now. Classic Pauillac.'

This vintage has just recently been shipped into Australia direct from the Chateau's cellars.

Pinot Shop is located in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia at 135 Paterson Street down at the river end near Cataract Gorge, Stillwater Restaurant and The Mill Providore. We specialise in the best of premium pinot noir as grown so beautifully in the cool climes of Tasmania, New Zealand and southern parts of the big Australian continent. Our love for pinot extends to its sibling styles pinot gris and grigio and fizzy cousins sparkling wine and Champagne, even when they don’t contain pinot noir. That’s not to say we’ve become too exclusive - we also stock an interesting range of delicious wines for those (rare) times when you’re not drinking pinot…
