Chateau Lilian Ladouys Saint Estephe 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Estephe|
|Brand||Chateau Lilian Ladouys|
Designation Barrel Tasting. Juicy, with a lively streak of anise running through the middle of the plum and bitter cherry core. The finish has solid, fresh grip. Score range: 90-93
The 2016 Lilian Ladouys is a blend of 62% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot aged in 30% new French oak for 15 months. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it sings of baked plums, crème de cassis and Black Forest cake with bay leaves, pencil lead and menthol. Medium-bodied, elegant and packed with vibrant flavor layers, it finishes long.
