2017 Haut-Bages-Libéral, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1357368 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is very floral with blueberry, fresh-currant and currant-bush aromas. Crushed stones. Medium body and creamy, lightly chewy tannins with citrus and blueberries. Tangy and pretty. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

90-93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Solid, with dark plum and currant fruit forming the core, while tobacco and iron accents add bass and cut through the finish. Has the fresh cut of the vintage. (JM, Web-2018) Inner quote mark

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark No frost affect at this estate in 2017, and the wine starts out well, majoring in bright dark fruits, but again this is extremely austere and needs time in the bottle to soften. Clear spice that once unfolded contributes to the excellent aromatics and the backbone suggests good ageing ahead. On the reductive side now, with notes of violet and rose. Drinking Window 2024-2038. (JA) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Haut-Bages Libéral is dense, powerful and quite rich. Red cherry, blood orange, pomegranate and spice all build in the glass. The 2017 boasts quite a bit of density and concentration but perhaps a bit less nuance. It remains to be seen whether the 2017 will accrue more finesse as the new oak (45%) integrates over time. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Fresh and juicy, this wine is quite a change in style for this estate. The wine's fine tannins are impressive, giving richness as well as succulence. Drink from 2023. (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2020)
