Perhaps this estate's finest wine, the 2009 is a blockbuster of a mature 2009 Bordeaux full of rich and exotic black fruits, forest floor, mint, and Indian spices. This is a can't miss wine!
About the Wine

Property Info

Château Lilian Ladouys is located in the south of the appellation of Saint-Estèphe. The "Ladouys" estate's history can be traces to the sixteenth century. The Chateau's vineyard covers 48 hectares offering a wide range of soils typical of the appellation allowing for a rich complexity in the wine. Since 2008 Château Lilian Ladouys has belonged to the Lorenzetti family, founders of the real estate company Foncia and are eager to devote their energy to improving the estate.

Tasting Notes

Elegant, with loads of black currant fruit, cherries and dusty, loamy soil notes as well as hints of tobacco leaf, spice box and cedar, it is a medium to full-bodied, nicely textured, fleshy wine that should drink nicely for 10-15+ years. This is the best wine I have ever tasted from this property, which has gone through many changes and frequent listless, uninspiring performances. The change to a better class of St.-Estephe was started by the late Vincent Mulliez, who passed away tragically last year, but who got things started by reducing yields, cleaning up the place, eliminating the TCA that had tainted so many wines in the past, and going with a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. The result is the best wine they have ever made, or at least the finest I have ever tasted from them.
