The property was acquired in 1960 by the Cruse family, who own Château Pontet Canet, they replated the vineyard and have returned Château Haut-Bages Liberal to its former glory.

Today, the property is run by Claire Villars Lurton, who manges the winemaking in a sustainable way. This 5th Classified Growth shares land next to Château Latour and behind Château Pichon Baron, so no wonder it producers impeccable wines, yet at a fraction of the price of the châteaux around them.

What the critics say:

96-97/100James Suckling

"Lots of redcurrants and blackcurrants with some cassis as well as iron, tile, stone and hints of dried herbs. Full-bodied with lots of pretty structure and very juicy tannins. Lively and energetic. Exciting to taste. pH 3.54 and with 13.9% alcohol. From biodynamically grown grapes. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification."

94-96/100Neal Martin, Vinous

"The 2022 Haut-Sages-Liberal was picked from 6 to 26 September and is being raised in 40% new oak, plus 20% in concrete tanks and amphorae. Yields were 45hl/ha, higher than many other estates, which Clare Villars-Lurton cites as a result of their long-term application of biodynamic viticulture and use of cover crops. It has an entrancing bouquet with blackberry, briary, crushed stone and light estuarine scents, understated initially but rapidly gaining intensity. The palate is medium-bodied, fresh and saline with sculpted tannins, stunning balance and a mineral finish. This is an outstanding, vivacious 2022 from proprietor Claire Villars-Lurton. "
