Tasting Notes and Scores

89-90+

Wine Advocate

Aromas of raspberries, plums and spices, framed by creamy new oak, introduce the 2021 Lilian Ladouys, a medium to full-bodied, charming and seamless wine that's lively and open-knit. It's a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc.

The 2021 Lilian Ladouys was picked from 28 September to 8 October and matured in 30% new oak. It has the smallest proportion of Merlot for several years. It has a generous bouquet with blue fruit and violet complementing the red fruit, just a touch of pencil lead in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannins, good backbone here, though quite strict and just needs a little more amplitude on the dark chocolate-tinged finish. Drink over the next 15-20 years.

This is lovely, has the same high aromatics as the Devise de Lilian, but here much more intesity and depth through the palate. Has finesse and balance, with raspberry fruits dominant, and a subtle persistency. Austerity in the tannins differentiates it from the really exuberant years such as 2018, but it's impressive, and the salty cracker salinity on the finish is thoroughly enjoyable. Organic conversion began in 2020, with 100% in organic for the first time in 2021, with expected certification in 2024.
