A rigorous selection of the noble grains (beads) as well as a wine making attached to the traditional methods, give to Château Liot wines brightness, intensity which seduces by the elegance and the wealth of its aromas. Jerry David also has very near in Pujols sur Ciron the Château Saint Jean des Graves, AOC Graves, a vineyard of 20 ha where are produced a very fruity dry white wine and an excellent red wine breeded in oak barrels.The rational wine growing is the applying of the rational agriculture concept to the wine growing.
