Chateau Lilian Ladouys Saint Estephe 2018
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Estephe|
|Brand||Chateau Lilian Ladouys|
A perennial over-achiever, the 2018 Château Lilian Ladouys doesn't disappoint and offers classic notes of black and blue fruits, damp earth, violets, and a touch of minerality. Made from 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot aging in 35% new French oak, this medium to full-bodied 2018 has beautiful purity, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It's going to be a brilliant value.
Barrel Tasting. This has a very pretty lilac note out front, followed by fresh plum and black cherry fruit flavors. Juicy in feel, with the minerality buried at the very end. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Score range: 90 - 93
