Château Haut-Bages Libéral was included among the fifth growths in 1855. This superb estate was renovated in 1960 when the Cruse family, who also owned Château Ponet-Canet at the time, undertook far-reaching replanting. Since the arrival of the Villars-Merlaut family in 1983, Haut-Bages Libéral has gradually recovered its formal glory.
Château Haut-Bages Libéral has 30 hectares of vines overlooking the Gironde River. Half of this area, located right next to Château Latour, features gravel on limestone and clay, and the other part, on the plateau of Bages, has deep gravels soil.
Today, Claire Villars Lurton is the owner of Château Haut- Bages Libéral. She modernised the winemaking facilities and introduced biodynamic and environmentally-friendly methods. She is committed to making the most of the terroir thanks to a very quality-oriented approach devoted to restoring the estate’s prestige.
