Rising in quality after a long period of disappointing wines, the 2012 Lilian Ladouys was cropped at 30 hectoliters per hectare and is composed of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot. It exhibits lots of pure black currant and black cherry fruit intermixed with notes of cedar wood, damp earth and spice box. Medium-bodied with lively, fresh, well-delineated fruit, good depth and intensity, and sweet tannins in the finish, it should drink well for 12-15 years.
