Chateau Liversan's fame was established in the 18th century when it was owned by the Marquis of Latresne and a Knight of Malta, although land records reveal a history stretching back to the Middle Ages. In 1984, the chateau was acquired by Prince Guy de Polignac - cousin of Prince Albert III of Monaco and the Grimaldi family and head of the Champagne House of Pommery - before being taken over by the Lapalu family in 1995. Now it is owned by Moueix family although the Chateau's history is still visible, on the estate and the bottle, with the Liversan coat of arms.
Overlooking the Gironde estuary and between Saint-Estephe and Saint-Julien in the Medoc peninsula, Chateau Liversan is situated among prestigious Grand Cru Classe neighbors such as Lafite Rothschild and Mouton Rothschild. Chateau Liversan produces elegant, refined, and accessible wines. Moreover, winemaker Philippe Marchal is ensuring that the vineyards of Chateau Liversan will continue to be known alongside the other two cru bourgeois properties Chateau Peyrabon and Ramage La Batisse - as they work to sustain the lands and emphasize what nature and tradition has given them in abundance.
This Bordeaux is a deep, ruby color. The nose is expressive with profound aromas of black fruit. The palate is soft with silky tannins. The finish is astonishingly fresh and ends with a good and delicate length, providing the right balance between maturity and freshness, concentration and elegance. Pair this wine with charcuterie and hard cheese like comte or swiss before dinner, or with a classic dish of milk braised lamb shoulder with parsley and garlic (L'epaule d'agneau de Pauillac). This wine will also pair well with stewed lentils and roasted root vegetables.
