James Suckling   94-95

Tannic and linear with blackberry and currant character. Full body, tight and chewy with a polished texture and excellent length. Shows toned muscles for the vintage. Demeter certified biodynamic.

Vinous   89-91

The 2017 Haut-Bages-Libéral offers blackberry and cedar on the nose, classically flaired and nicely defined though perhaps a little conservative in style compared to others. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin although it lacks a little density in the middle and tapers towards the finish with pencil shavings liberally sprinkled over the aftertaste. I suspect that this Pauillac will drink nicely over the next decade. Tasted at the UGC trade tasting.

Decanter   89

Ripe but savoury cassis, with more of a bud than fruit character. This is gentle and insisting, a lovely build up of different elements of fruit, tobacco and charcoal. They had higher yields than last year here, as at many Pauillac estates. It's their first year of 100% conversion with Demeter, although they have been progressively converting over last few years and are already Ecocert certified. It will be ready to drink within five to eight years. 40% new oak for six months.
