2018 vintage. This estate was bought by Jacky Lorenzetti in 2007 and the investments are paying off (see also the spectacular quality improvement at their Pauillac estate Pédesclaux). While previous vintages featured a majority of Merlot, this 2018 is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37%. Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. This might very well be the best vintage to date for Lilian Ladouys in a year where Jacky's daughter Manon joined the business. She is highly devoted to organic farming and the Lorenzetti estates are now officially in conversion to organic. Moreover, Lilian Ladouys was promoted to "Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel" status in 2020. An estate to watch and the wines are very affordable too at around 20 euros. Classic nose with ripe cassis and cedar wood, intertwined with a fresh minty aroma. In the mouth the fruit is concentrated and layered with amazing freshness and a solid ripe tannin structure that make the alcohol (abv. 14,5%) go unnoticed. Long mineral finish. Highly recommended. Still very young, give it time to open up or decant. Should age beautifully for at least 15 years.

Wow what an oddball, and an outlier, certainly for the region and especially the appellation. Clarity-wise, looks almost like Barolo, but with a dark purple hue. Medium-bodied, weight-wise drinks somewhere between Chinon and a Burg. I like it, it's just bizarre. Quite minty / floral / savory - very lilac, damp leaves, dried herbs. High-toned cherry on the mid-palate. Really, really minty. Delicate finish, wispy tannins, nice acidity. Well ok then...

2015 vintage. An unusually high percentage of Merlot for Saint-Estèphe. This estate is owned by the quality-conscious Lorenzetti family (who did such a great job at Pédesclaux in Pauillac), and it is great value.

A sophisticated full bottle red with clean finish. Goes well with spaghetti.

Merlot-dominant. Väl avvägd fruktighet, tillgänglig men inte för generös. Medelfyllig, medel tannin. Plommon, mörka bär, blyerts och cigarrlåda. Går ok att dricka nu även om en handfull år säkert gör gott.

Waiting for it to open up a bit. Light and tight, but a lovely red for for the price.

Got one of these to try and was very pleased. 62% merlot, 33% Cabernet Sav and the rest Petit Verdot and Cab Franc. Very complex with a wide profile of aromas and flavors. I definitely want a few more of these to store for some years.
