Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate – 89-90+/100
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.
Vinous – neil Martin – 89-91/100
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.
