Château Lilian Ladouys, Saint-Estèphe

One of the most southerly of the Saint-Estèphe châteaux, Lilian Ladouys is on the same plateau as Cos d’Estournel, about half a mile to the west. The blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot; with the wine being aged for about 15 months in oak barrels. According to Robert Parker (in March 2013) the 2010 shows, ‘deep blackcurrant fruit, forest notes mixed with roasted herbs, licorice and a touch of oak’. The Wine Enthusiast marked the 2010 at 94.
