K&L Notes

91-93 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2018 Haut-Bages Libéral, which was tasted directly from barrel at the property, was picked at 50hl/ha from September 17 to around October 10. There is about 60mg of SO2 in this wine. It has a delightful bouquet of blackberry, boysenberry and light pencil box aromas that show engaging purity. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chalky tannin, the acidity very well-judged and the 40% new oak nicely integrated. There is a boldness to this Pauillac that I like and that perhaps has not been evident in previous vintages. The solid finish displays fine density. This is definitely worth checking out."

    Given all that this property has going for it— its superb terroir located between Chateau Latour and Chateau Pichon Baron; its winemaking team led by the legendary Claire Lurton; the excellent vintage seen in Pauillac in 2018— it should really be no surprise that this tasted as good as it did during En Primeur week. It showed the power of the vintage with a concentrated black cherry-kirsch core, plenty of gravelly minerals and graphite, notes of licorice and earthy herbs, while still retaining elegance and a long, acid-driven finish. At the price, this is one of the best pre-arrival values from the appellation.
