This is a second wine of the forth growth Bordeaux Château Prieuré-Lichine (Classification of 1855). This is the first wine that I have had that I understood the aroma of "cat piss". Don't let this put you off though, this wine is very complex and enjo...

|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Saint-Julien|
|Varietal:||Cabernet Sauvignon , Merlot|
Deep plummy color. Wonderful nose, with cherry fruit aromas. Fine tannins. Needs at least an hour in the decanter. We drank this over 2 hours, and it just got better and better. Terrific Bordeaux.

I was going to comment on the French stickie but got a little behind. ... was only five years old in 1855; to be classified an estate had to be in existence for 50 years at the time. Do you think the classification system could stand some updating?) Suidurat and the Pyragueys are also on similar ground. While they aren't cheap (buy you als... Read More
Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More
