Tasting Notes: This Lilian Ladouys 2014 has a beautiful and intense purple color. The bouquet is very open, dominated by the Merlots, and 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.
Food Pairing: Get out the charcuterie. Simple grilled meats and goat and sheep cheeses.
