Château Lilian Ladouys is a Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel (the top Cru Bourgeois classification) whose deep commitment to organic agriculture is driven by the Lorenzetti family’s passion and the knowledge of the estate’s teams.
Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel
On 20th February 2020, the verdict was handed down: Château Lilian Ladouys had been classified as a Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel! This honour crowns years of hard work and investment by the whole team and additionally highlights the quality of the wines, the exemplary vineyard techniques, the promotion of the wines and the welcome that the estate offers its guests.
Committed to organic agriculture in the vineyards
In 2020, Château Lilian Ladouys has committed to converting the entirety of their vineyards to organic agriculture. At the moment, 20% of the Lilian Ladouys plots are organically farmed.
This year, the family has rubber-stamped this commitment: from 2020 onwards, they are officially in conversion to full organic practice.

Château Lilian Ladouys 2019, our last vintage “En Primeur”
In 2019, all the stars aligned to ensure a great vintage. There was exceptional weather during the vine’s maturation period, from June to October. The grapes were concentrated, beautifully balanced and delivered fully on their considerable capacity for complexity. The result is a 2019 with velvety tannins, its exceptional balance similar to that of the 2016 or 2018, while the aromatic freshness is even more pronounced than it was in those vintages.
