JS 95
jamessuckling.com, February 2017
Aromas of cassis bush and wet earth with oyster shell. Medium to full body, firm and juicy tannins and a delicious finish. A well-rounded wine. Fantastic depth. From biodynamically grown grapes. Try drinking in 2020.

Wine Enthusiast, April 2015
(WE92-94 points) Typical Cabernet fruit flavors and fresh, juicy acidity are the hallmarks of this wine. It is structured, yes, but the fruit is right out front. The finish shows the wood aging, with lingering spice notes.

(WS89-92 points) A tight, sleek style, with red and black currant fruit, lined with edgy savory, cassis bush and iron notes. The long finish lets the cassis bush element play out. – JM

(WA88-91 points) The Château Haut-Bages Libéral 2014 has generous bouquet with plush red cherry and crushed strawberry scents, touches of cassis developing in the glass. The palate is better with gently gripping tannin and an attractive grainy texture. It is nicely balanced with blackberry and graphite notes on the linear finish. Not a bad Pauillac 2014 with its pencil lead aftertaste, though it could do with a bit more flair. - Neal Martin

The 2014 Haut-Bages Libéral is vibrant and also quite closed in on itself, which is probably a good thing for the medium term. Smoke, gravel, smoke, anise, tobacco and intense red-fruit notes are front and center. I would give the 2014 a few years in bottle to shed some tannins, but I imagine the wine will always be a bit wild.
