Wine and food pairing : The wines of Château LIOT by their fruit and their vivacity express themselves perfectly as an aperitif, their alliance with blue cheeses like Roquefort is a delight.
They also go well with fine fish (turbot in mousseline sauce, pike quenelles, sole fillets, langoustine terrines with tarragon), foie gras, game such as quail and partridge, and fruit.
