Lilian Ladouys 2000
Lilian Ladouys is a Saint-Estèphe Cru Bourgeois which took a long time to find its own style. However, since it was bought by the business man Jacky Lorenzetti in 2008 (Pédesclaux, Issan), this cru has warranted attention from all wine lovers. The wine has gained definition and vintage after vintage the progress made has been most impressive. And it is very affordably priced.
The bouquet releases notes of spices and toast. On the palate, it is fruity, rounded and refined, with sound, perfectly integrated tannins. Very elegant, this wine benefits from a few years in the cellar to bring out its full richness.
