Winery: "A blend of 56% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, this Lilian Ladouys 2014 has a beautiful and intense purple color. The bouquet is very open, dominated by the Merlots from gravels on bedrock clay-limestone soils, exhibits notes of small red fruits and orange peels. After aeration, the wine is on the rise and reveals flavors of cedar and gunflint aromas. The palate is expressive, it has a lovely attack extended by a chewy structure. The finish has some powdered tannins with a lot of moka and toasted almonds flavors. 2014 is probably the best vintage made since the purchase done by Jacky and Françoise Lorenzetti."

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. Better in two or three years, but already very pretty. 93 Points"

Wine Enthusiast: "Under the ownership of Jacky Lorenzetti, president of one of France's top rugby clubs, this estate is now performing impressively. The wine is finely structured with dark tannins and tight acidity and a hint of minerality. It is Merlot dominated, although it is the 40% Cabernet Sauvignon that brings out the black-currant fruitiness. Drink from 2022. 93 Points"
