K&L Notes

91 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2016 Lilian Ladouys is just as beautiful from bottle as it was from barrel. Lifted, silky and exceptionally perfumed, the 2016 has so much to offer. Bright red toned fruits laced with expressive floral top notes run through this sensual, totally gracious Saint-Estèphe. There is so much to like. Lilian Ladouys is a rare Saint-Estèphe where Merlot takes precedence over Cabernet Sauvignon. Tasted two times." (Vinous, 1/2019)

    This is very lively and clean with crunchy red fruit in spades and a touch of spice. There is a hard candy sweetness to the cherry and berry flavors and a high acid freshness right through the middle in to the somewhat strict finish of fine tannin.

    St-Estèphe really shines in 2016, with the Lilian Ladouys standing out as a top value. Lifted aromatics lead to a lively palate of black fruit, cinnamon, and sweet herbs. Great intensity and a silky mouth-feel persist throughout. A really impressive offering!

    These 2016 St Estephe wines are phenomenal and this one is a great value. Better than the 2014 by a bit, this wine had black licorice aromas and flavors. Slightly new wave but controlled balance and fine mouth feel. Super spicy notes and a lush texture. Superb value.

    A near neighbor of Chateau Lafon-Rochet, this is a property that in the past few years has become a customer favorite due to its combination of quality and price. The 2016 Lilian Ladouys will no doubt both delight existing fans of the wine as well as win over many new Bordeaux lovers with its generous fruit and overall balance and character. Beguilingly aromatic, a bit floral and a bit spicy. Good underlying structure – lively acidity and firm, fine tannins. Top quality, and very true to the vintage.
