With Merlot narrowly dominating the blend and a historically high percentage of Petit Verdot, Château Lilian Ladouys 2022 is broodingly dark in colour, revealing multi-layered aromas of dark fruits, violets and spices. It is rich and balanced in structure, not too overpowering. Round and taut on the palate, with silky, soft tannins : all the hallmarks of a very great vintage.
