Château Lilian Ladouys 2020 – Saint-Estèphe Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel

The wine has a ruby color of medium intensity. The nose is reserved at first, but gains from being aerated. It then expresses notes of wild strawberry, crushed strawberry, cherry, raspberry, creamy blackcurrant, morello cherry, cherry yogurt, blackberry and blueberry jam, combined with subtle spicy notes (licorice stick , clove, ground nutmeg, a sweet touch of cinnamon and vanilla), roasted (toasted hazelnut, caramel in the background), wild mint, chocolate cherry and flowers (violet, peony, cornflower) . The palate is enveloping and silky, with a soft and velvety, but assertive tannin structure, and a beautiful acidity. It expresses the flavors of wild strawberry, morello cherry, red cherry jam, creamy blackcurrant, redcurrant jelly, mint chocolate, macerated cherry in chocolate, as well as delicate and integrated notes of sweet spices (licorice , grated nutmeg, cloves, toasted vanilla), of torrefaction (mild coffee, toasted hazelnut), dried mint and flowers (violet, iris, cornflower). The finish is long, gourmand, with lots of fruit and a fine touch of cocoa in the background. A gourmand, complex and elegant wine, accessible from its youth, but capable of evolving for years.
