The ruby/purple '11 Château Lilian Ladouys Red Bordeaux St.-Estèphe perfumes the nose with red licorice, graphite, black cherry and peppery oak scents. Medium-bodied and a bit austere on the tongue. Dusty tannins on the mineral-laced finish. A good food wine.

Took a while to open up, but when it does, wow!

Starts off with some dark fruit, lavender, and minerality with tons of oak on the nose.. The wood blows off after a couple hours and turns into blackberry jam, pepper, and sweet licorice.. Thankfully the lavender stays in place. On the palate, it is very even-keeled and new world-esque with luscious dark fruit, minerality, and moderate tannins. I can see why spectator liked it, it doesn't need as much time as the '10.

Pretty fantastic. Graphite, pencil shavings, dark fruit but low alc., mineral, floral, subtle, killer!

Nice food wine. Tobacco and black cherry notes when it opened. Classic finish. Went well with the Christmas herbed crusted prime rib.

Needs more time. Will wait another year before trying another bottle. Very tannic

Pretty good Bordeaux. Opened up more each day it was open. Definitely was a bit closed and could have used a few more years.

After breathing for a few hours it has great body, depth, and linger with some pepperyness and licorice and black cherry notes.

Very tasty. Nice blackberry flavors with a medium to slightly strong finish.
