Located on the Haut-Barsac plateau, Château Liot has belonged to the David family for several generations.
A benchmark among Sauternes wines, the Château Liot vineyards stretch across 40 hectares, 24 of which are planted in Sauternes and 20 with red and white grapes in Graves. This terroir is made up of red clay soil on a limestone base. Château Liot has been HVE certified since 2020.
A mild winter, which advanced an early budburst in March, preceded a warm, sunny and dry climate to which the vines adapted thanks to their deep roots. The alternation of warm days and cool nights in September ensured rapid ripening as well as an excellent health of the vines and the gradual development of Botrytis Cinerea. The harvest, which was carried out by successive selections, began on 22 September and ended on 24 October.
Winemaking and ageing
Manual harvesting by three successive selections. Traditional fermentation and vinification. Aged in barrels for 12 months.
Sauvignon Blanc (15%)
The wine is bright and light-filled, revealing a light yellow colour.
The nose has a wonderful freshness and delights with its aromatic richness, especially its intense fragrances of dried fruit.
The fruity (dried apricot, mirabelle plum) attack gives way to a palate that exudes delicious verbena notes with freshness and persistence.
Food and wine pairing
Ideal as an aperitif, this Sauternes wine goes well with starters (exotic salad, vegetable mousse), Asian dishes (ginger chicken, prawns with lemongrass) and cheeses.
