NEW *** VERY SMALL QUANTITY LEFT *** (For those who know...) -- CHATEAU LILIAN LADOUYS, Saint Estephe 2011 CRUS BOURGEOIS - 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a GRAND VIN! I first tasted this wine about 10 years ago with a group of wine lovers and professionals in Southern France. Soon afterwards the owners fell on hard times and the Chateau was sold. I think it has been sold several times since, and produced mediocre wines for several years. I tasted a 2010 last year which was great. unfortunately I could not obtain any of that vintage, but I tasted the 2011 when it became available and found it back to it's high standard. I managed to obtain a very (VERY) small allotment of only 42 bottles (3 cases of 12 available in Original Wooden Cases). This wine is from an assemblage containing one of the highest concentrations of Merlot in the appellation at 70%. The remainder is made from Cabernet Sauvignon with deep color and a perfume of licorice, coffee and black cherry. This medium-bodied wine has fresh cassis in the finish. 93 Pts Wine Enthusiast.
