Chateau Lilian Ladouys 2014 St Estephe


This small estate goes from strength to strength, having recently been awarded Cru Bourgeois Exceptionelle status. Moving to full organic conversion.

55 % Merlot, 40 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 4 % Cabernet Franc, and 1 % Petit Verdot.

What a pleasure this wine is! Plump and stewed cherry and raspberry/cassis-juicy hand in hand with a subtle, complex and refined floral aspect, almost minty lift, beautiful solid striding wine. Silky edged, elegant spice and bay leaf notes on the finish but backed with a creamy almond quality. Cracking, complex, rewarding but easy.
