Château Pédesclaux

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2021

2020 vintage. The heavy investments by the Lorenzetti family are paying off. The ugly duckling turned into a beautiful swan. Kudos to Vincent Bache-Gabrielsen, Manon Lorenzetti, and team. This impressive 2020 is a blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, and equal parts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Classy nose with blackcurrant, cedar wood and lead pencil. In the mouth, it is focused, with succulent layered black fruit, juicy acidity and haute couture tannins. Very long and fresh finish. Amazing value too. — 8 months ago

Pino Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir

Really blossoms over time. Goes from lingonberry and cherry jam to black pepper and hen of the woods then back to that raspberry brightness. Vg for a no sulfiter — 4 years ago

Clos Marie

Manon Coteaux du Languedoc Pic St. Loup 2021

Young and highly quaffable. Plenty of stuffing to age into something serious. — 9 months ago

Château Lilian Ladouys

Saint Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

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. — 3 years ago
