The 2020 Haut-Bages Libéral was picked up from 10 until 30 September at 45hl/ha. It has a very harmonious bouquet with blackberry, crushed stone and graphite aromas. The palate is very smooth with an underlying spiciness, veins of blue fruit, quite saline with a touch of liquorice towards the finish. Lots of potential here with a crunchy, structured finish. Peppermint furnishing the aftertaste, this should age with style. Tasted with Clare Lurton at the château.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2045
