Chateau Lilian Ladouys 2010 Cru Bourgeois, St. Estephe
A Bordeaux property that dates back to the 1600's, this chateau was modernized and refurbished during the 90's. Designated a Cru Bourgoeis, its vineyards have the unique distinction of many old vine planting of between 40 and 60 years of age. These old vines add complexity and depth to the wine. The 2011 was #72 on the Wine Spectator Top 100 for 2014. This 2010 is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. The wine is aged 14-16 months in 40% new French oak barrels. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 94 points saying "Obviously wood-aged, with a smoky toast flavor, this is a wine that shows the power of Saint-Estèphe tannins in full force. At the same time, there is a blackberry character that adds richness and juiciness, which cuts through the dry core. Age for at least 7–8 years."

    Comments about Chateau Lilian Ladouys 2010 Cru Bourgeois, St. Estephe:

    This is an elegant wine from start to finish with true St. Estephe character. A fragrant nose of black cherry, plum and hints of mint lead to similar flavors with a lovely espresso element to it. Dusty tannins and a dense core give this wine some serious structure. Drinking well know but this will certainly evolve over the next decade.

    • Beef, Game
