Chateau Prieure-Lichine Double 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The vineyard that provides the grapes for the production of the white was created in 1990 on a small 1.5 hectare plot in the commune of Arsac. Thanks to the vineyard's sandy-gravelly soil over a sub-soil of clay, this wine achieves amazing complexity. Its fatness and aromatic finesse are brought by an ageing on fine lees in Burgundy barrels that are renewed by one third each year."- Chateau

A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Prieure-Lichine 1500ml



Tasting Notes:

Robert Parker (90-93/100): "This sexy, delicious effort is atypically fat, fleshy and opulent for a 2011. While the acidity is present, it is lower than in many Medocs. The wine displays lots of blue, red and black fruits intertwined with a floral note that provides additional complexity. Front end-loaded with a mid-palate and finish that fill out nicely, this beautifully made wine is a true sleeper of the vintage. Drink it over the next 15+ years."
