This is grippy and old-school in style, with a core of warmed fig and black currant paste flavors framed by ample charcoal and baker's chocolate notes, but this is well-integrated, and everything cruises nicely through a sanguine-accented finish. Drink now through 2023. (JM, Web Only-2016)
This fifth growth is punching above its class under the control of Claire Villars-Lurton (whose family also runs Chasse-Spleen and La Gurgue). The wine is foursquare, rich and solid, filled with firm tannins. Blackcurrant fruit flavors, herbs and acidity complete a serious style of wine. (RV)
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. (RP)
