Information About Chateau Lilian Ladouys

Chateau Lilian Ladouys first appeared on Nickolls & Perks' radar back in 1989, when the back to back vintage successes, of the 1989 and 1990 caused quite a stir receiving great praise from the American wine guru, Robert Parker.  Recent vintages, 2009 & 2010 have also hit the headlines with great reviews from Jancis Robinson, The Wine Spectator and Decanter Magazine. The clayey northern medoc soil is planted with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, the balance of Merlot with 5% Cabernet Franc. Recently acquired by the wealthy Loronzetti Family this is an estate to watch.

Tasting Date : 28 April 2017

The 2016 Lilian Ladouys is a blend of 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 62% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot picked between 3-17 October and matured in 30% new oak. It has a tightly wound bouquet with blackberry, wild hedgerow and graphite, plenty of fruit here with excellent delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with ebullient red berry fruit laced with white pepper and bay leaf, a touch of brown spice towards the generous finish. Very fine...this is a step up from the 2015.

Rating : 91-93/100
