Chateau Haut Bages Liberal 2004

91 points

Pauillac, Bordeaux, France. 13%

Another very good 2004.  Dense fresh cabernet, Pauillac.

Haut Bages Liberal is doing very well lately, and this is perhaps the best I’ve tasted.  It’s too young of course, but the acid is not too prominent.  There is more depth and opulence than the, also very good, 2002.

  2. just drank a 750 ml bottle of the 2004 here in Swampscott, MA paired with grilled tenderloin of beef.
    Strong alcohol on the nose at first blush, with some dark fruit evident at first taste. I was left wanting more as the wine
    evolved in the glass and opened up a wee bit to allow for some bolder dark fruit. I am glad to have another half-bottle still
    left in my cellar for future comparison.
