Lilian Ladouys 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

93-94 Points, James Suckling: "Firm and silky with a lovely depth of fruit and polished tannins. Some cedar and berry. Full and dense. Excellent length. Energetic acidity at end. Yes. Better than the super 2014. Best ever" 4/17 91-93 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "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." 4/17 #230 Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2016 Lilian Ladouys is wonderfully expressive in this vintage. Lifted, savory aromatics and pliant fruit are some of the signatures, but it is the wine's sublime balance and sense of proportion that stand out most. Silky tannins add to the midweight, gracious feel. This is a strong showing. Lilian Ladouys is a rare Saint-Estèphe where Merlot takes precedence over Cabernet Sauvignon. Tasted two times." 4/17

This relatively new property in the most northerly Bordeaux Commune of Saint Estephe seems to evoke lukewarm reviews; yet, the wine from 2010 seems quite well done: it has a nice blackberry and currant nose followed by a soft, silky entry with low tannin and a hint of vanilla, plum and other dark fruit. Rather typical, in fact. Will last 2-5 years, but best now or next year. 89 points.

This wine was given some great scores by the press although it didn't show any quality upon my tasting. Only slightly tannic and deeply colored, though it lacked fruit. Nice cedar nose. Overpriced. My rating 83.
