Experience the allure of Lilian Ladouys 2014, a wine that captivates with its beautiful and intense purple hue. This vintage, a masterpiece from the gravels on clay-limestone soils dominated by Merlots, unfolds a bouquet that is both open and inviting. Notes of small red fruits and hints of orange peels lead the way, while aeration elevates the wine to reveal enticing cedar and gunflint aromas.
On the palate, Lilian Ladouys 2014 is expressive, featuring a delightful attack followed by a chewy structure. The finish is marked by powdered tannins, complemented by rich flavors of moka and toasted almonds. Recognized as perhaps the finest vintage since Jacky and Françoise Lorenzetti's acquisition, this blend of 56% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot captures the essence of a remarkable year. Immerse yourself in the character and charm of Lilian Ladouys 2014, a true testament to the artistry of winemaking.
"Love the black-truffle and dark-berry aromas here that follow through to a firm, full-bodied palate with polished and chewy tannins. Juicy and real. Better in two or three years, but already very pretty."
"Under the ownership of Jacky Lorenzetti, president of one of France's top rugby clubs, this estate is now performing impressively. The wine is finely structured with dark tannins and tight acidity and a hint of minerality. It is Merlot dominated, although it is the 40% Cabernet Sauvignon that brings out the black-currant fruitiness. Drink from 2022."
