  • 93 James Suckling

    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.

    Fantastic aromas of blueberries, orange peel and flowers. Full-bodied, fruity – yet silky and focused with a beautiful center palate of fruit and ripe tannins. Remains fresh and gorgeous. Best ever.

    Juicy, with good briary energy to the core of crushed plum and black currant fruit. Bay and tobacco notes fill in on the finish, adding range, though the fruit holds the upper hand easily. Best from 2018 through 2026. (Tasted: 2/10/2017)

  • 92 Wine Advocate (Neal Martin)

    The Château Lilian-Ladouys 2014 veers towards fleshy red berry fruit on the nose with hints of dried herbs and sous-bois lending personality, something to talk about. The palate is medium-bodied with tobacco infused black fruit, masculine in style with good backbone and impressive precision on the finish. This Saint Estèpe cru has seen a rapid improvement in recent years and this is another fine wine to add to their roster. I expect the bottle sample to land at the upper end of the band and continue the upswing in fortunes since its acquisition by Jacky Lorenzetti. (Tasted: 4/30/2015)

  • 91 Asian Palate (Jeannie Cho Lee MW)

    Juicy and ripe with crunchy red berries and cassis. This wine is joyful and bright with wonderful vibrancy and flavors. A successful vintage for Lilian Ladouys. A great value wine. (Tasted: 4/20/2015)

  • 90 Vinous Antonio Galloni

    The 2014 Lilian Ladouys is soft, plump and incredibly appealing. Bright red cherry, raspberry, rose petal, mint and sweet spice notes are all pushed forward. This is an absolutely delicious, joyous bottle of wine to enjoy for its primary fruit and raciness.
