Château Lilian Ladouys
This château has been classified as a Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel since 2020, which reflects years of hard work and investment by the team. It has been regarded as one of the finest in St-Estèphe and able to trace its history back to 1564.
The wine is aged for 15 months in 40% new oak, giving an explosive nose with notes of crushed raspberry, cherry and cocoa. The quality of the vintage shines through on the palate with a fulsome character, cherry, nutmeg and chocolate. The freshness is retained too, evident on the lengthy finish.
