2000 Haut-Bages-Libéral, Pauillac (soiled label)

SKU #1257576 92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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. (JM, Web-2015) Inner quote mark

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark 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) Inner quote mark (6/2003)

Decanter

Outer quote mark Lovely blackcurrant fruit, creamy oak in background, very fine. Tremendous purity of flavours, grainy tannins, lovely balance, well proportioned. (RB) Inner quote mark (2/2003)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2003)
