Cheteau Liversan Haut-Medoc
(UPC # 187674000847)
Located in the area of Saint Sauveur next to Pauillac, the vineyard has included Château Liversan and Château Fonpiqueyre since the XVIIIth century. The soil made of gravel limestone on a chalk subsoil acts as a filter favouring the vines' roots.Classified as Cru Bourgeois in 1932 this estate was formerly owned by the Marquis de Latresne at the XVIIIth century and by the Prince Guy de Polignac from 1984 until the takeover by the Lapalu family. The rather feminine character of these wines is expressed through rich tannins although strongly structured and with a great aromatic complexity. This remarkable wine from the Haut-Medoc region of Bordeaux has been aged in oak barrels during 12 months.
Chateau Liversan 2006 is an elegant combination of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot. This wine is elegant and rich. A combination of raspberry and cassis, with plumy Merlot. Tannins are ripe with wonderful aromatic expression. Very well balanced with some cedar notes result in an attractive bouquet.
