Chateau Lilian Ladouys Cru Bourgeois Saint Estephe 2017 750ml
- Cabernet Sauvignon, Bordeaux Blend, Merlot
James Suckling – 93 Points (2017)
In the 2017 Lillian Ladouys vintage, Cabernets-Sauvignons are silky and delicate, and the Petit Verdot grapes add complexity. A gourmet scent of red fruits, reminiscent of pomegranate, is balanced by orange peel aromas with delicate floral notes. The wine is juicy, racy and offers a nice length to the palate. Flavors of blackcurrants and violets reveal an open and very aromatic wine. A spicy finish, reminiscent of cloves, brings a fresh vivacity.
