Château Liot is good value un-classified Sauternes. The wine is elegant and delicious if lacking in complexity and power.

Winemaking/Elévage: Fermentation and ageing in barrels and vats for 18 months.

Tasting notes:

  • 2005 Pale gold; peaches and cream again here with some citrus elements; very nicely balanced. Will age well. Fresh. 87/100 Aug 09

  • 2001 Pale gold; lovely delightful nose of honeysuckle and citrus; mid weight with good balance and acid. Good. 86/100 Nov 05
