2012 Château Lilian Ladouys, St Estèphe

2012 Château Lilian Ladouys, St Estèphe

Ref: BORD12109
Red  |  Still  |  13.1% ABV

In the 17th century this property was known as La Doys. By the time it was bought by the Barre family in the 19th century that name had morphed into Ladouys. In the early 20th century the property was in a poor state and it was sold to a family called Thieblot. Its name changed to immortalise Lilian Thieblot in 1989. Lilian Ladouys is now owned by Jacky Lorenzetti, who made a fortune in real estate and who also owns châteaux Pedesclaux and Haut Milon in Pauillac, as well as 50% of Château d'Issan in Margaux.

"The 2012 Lilian Ladouys is an unusually silky, fragrant Saint-Estèphe. Sweet red berry, mint, spice, new leather and plum add shades of nuance. Drink this attractive, mid-weight wine over the next few years." Antonio Galloni

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained


All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
