90 Points - WINE ENTHUSIAST
Château Liversan is located in Saint-Sauveur, next to Pauillac. The sand-graveled soil on a calcareous plate is very filter and the deep rootedness of the vineyards is largely favored.
Classified as a Cru Bourgeois in 1932, this splendid estate built in 1850 was formerly owned by the Marquis de Latresne during the 18th century and by the Prince Guy de Polignac from 1984 until the takeover by the Lapalu family in 1995.
Ageing Potential: 7-10 Years
"Deeply-coloured. Beautifully classic-style nose where black fruit, a mineral-earthy dimension and subtle wood intermix. Fullness, fine-grained, tightly-wound texture and elegance. A first-rate Haut-Médoc designed for cellaring". Gibert & Gaillard
