Château Prieure Lichine Margaux Grand Cru Classé 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The vineyard which provides the grapes for the production of white wine was created in 1990 on a small 1.5 hectare plot in the commune of Arsac. Thanks to the vineyard's sandy-gravel soils over a subsoil of clay, the 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.

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 enjoyable. My friend found this wine marked down twice at the amazing price of $14. I would happily pay $25-$30 for this if you can find it.

deep dark ruby, somewhat full-bodied. velvety berry nose, with floral and black tea on the back. somewhat rough tannins. just barely tart, a decently long finish.

Promising plummy black cherry / currant nose. Taste: Blech. Either over the hill or corked (though the previous bottle was apparently the same). Medium+ tannins, medium acid and body. Possibly flawed, but more likely, just not very good. $27

Really solid Margaux. Hitting its sweet spot. Red berries, soft tannins, nice complexity.
