La Devise De Lilian Saint-Estephe 2014 Red Blend 750 mL

"The Second Wine to the Lilian Ladouys, made about as soft and inviting as a St Estèphe can get, like dressing a wolverine in a Spongebob costume. Cabernet-driven and quite a bit more approachable than the Grand Vin, with generous black fruit and bits of smoky caramel leading the way, this is elegantly drinkable and more than a bit floral. Rich and delicious but it’s still a St. Estèphe and it still doesn’t trust you, so decant it long enough for it to get used to your scent." - Jordan Carrier, Everything Wine Vintage room consultant

  • Under the ruby colour, the nose is intense and complex. Enjoy this dry, full-bodied and woody red featuring refreshing acidity. On the palate, it showcases fleshy tannins and a broad mouthfeel that leads into a medium finish.
  • Fruity with a velvety structure, it pairs wonderfully with fresh cuisine such as white meat or fruity desserts.
  • Drawing on history to tackle each vintage in a new way, doing away with ready-made recipes, listening to the vine and the terroir: this is the Lilian Ladouys work philosophy. Blind tastings are constantly performed throughout the year, whether of the grapes themselves or of batches in barrels. ‘Taste is at the heart of all our choices’, as Vincent Bache-Gabrielsen puts it.

    La Devise de Lilian has become a benchmark among second wines. Its flavourful style and its well-integrated tannins have won the hearts of those who love softness and richness. La Devise does not use strict plot definition, but is instead a true second wine, a genuine signature blend with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot at the forefront.

  • The Pruning favours a good airflow through the fruiting zone, a disbudding, an increase of leaf surface, a thinning out of leaves. Just before the harvest, we control the ripeness in the plots once or two times per week but also a blind tasting of the berries. Manual harvest and sorting combined with the new techniques of de-stemming. The harvest lasts from the 3rd of October to the 15th of October.
  • La Devise is matured for an average of 12 months and is accessible in its youthful prime.
  • Château Ladouys gained its “Lilian” in 1989, in honourof the then-owner’s wife.
