The 2015 Lilian Ladouys offers terrific depth and nuance within the context of the vintage. Sweet herbs, tobacco, mint, licorice and black cherry notes abound. Overall, the 2015 is a bit rustic, but pleasingly so. This is a very solid effort for the year. In 2015, the blend is 56% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Château Lilian Ladouys is a blend of 62% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. It has a broody, earthy, very Saint Estèphe bouquet that was showing a great deal of new oak when I tasted it. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannin on the entry, quite masculine and foursquare, plenty of fruit with strong tobacco notes coming through on the finish. If I am being honest, I was just hoping for a little more from this ever-improving Cru Bourgeois under the guiding hand of Emmanuel Cruse, though I feel that it is just slightly compromised by the September storm clouds.

Very fine and silky with polished and tight tannins. Medium to full body, currant and mineral aftertaste. Mar 2016, JamesSuckling.com

A bright, high-pitched style, with blood orange and red currant fruit inlaid with a singed balsam note. Stays a bit taut but shows length, suggesting this may fill in a bit more. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

64% Merlot - most unusual in this commune. Thanks to recently exchanged parcels. Very lifted nose. And then a little austere on the palate. The fruit weight is a bit lacking. Did the rain dilute this? Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2021-2028
