Château Lilian Ladouys is Bordeaux Cru Bourgeois wine property located in Saint-Estèphe with 40ha vineyards on gravel rich soils and well-drained slopes overlooking the Gironde. 

This robust red blend is made up of 58% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc.  Accompanied by loads of black currant fruit, cherries and dusty, loamy soil notes, as well as hints of tobacco leaf, spice box and cedar, that should age nicely for 10+ years.

Tasting Notes

The 2016 Château Lilian Ladouys reveals a very deep garnet red color, enhanced with beautiful violet hues. Its explosive nose exudes notes of crushed raspberry, cherry with brandy and bitter cocoa. These are backed with intense floral notes that recall a spring flowers bouquet, relieved by aromas of cedar and sandalwood. An ample attack, on the volume and the fat, brings towards a dense body, a powerful and velvety matter. The 2016 vintage’s generosity is reminded in a perfect balance of freshness and delight. The cherry is very present, enhanced with notes of orange peel, chocolate and nutmeg.

Food Pairing

Château Lilian Ladouys is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, including; veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted braised and grilled dishes. Also pairs well with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
