The Story

Château Haut-Bages Libéral is a 5th Classified Growth in 1855. The vineyard spreads over 30 hectares and half of its area is located right next to Château Latour. The other part of the vineyard is on the plateau of Bages, South of Pauillac.

Pauillac is not a town rich in Classified Growths by chance. This exceptional terroir is a gift of nature. According to Claire Villars, no less than 90% of the work is done in the vineyard. The idea is to bring out the excellence of the terroir of Château Haut-Bages Liberal.

She has achieved the challenge of producing generous, elegant and powerful wines.

In her management of the vineyard, Claire Villars Lurton is directing her thoughts and practices towards sustainable and integrated vine growing. In 2010, an experiment in organic farming was conducted on some plots of merlot and in 2011, in biodynamic on cabernet sauvignon.
