Château Prieure Lichine Margaux Grand Cru Classé 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Medium ruby-colored with a leafy dried tobacco red currant and berry-scented nose this Bordeaux displays nice ripeness spicy new oak and a forward juicy style. It is not a powerful backward wine but rather a stylish open-knit claret for consuming over the next 10-12 years.

Really nice and mellow molasses and deep ripe black fruit aromas and a hint of black olive waft off. An austere wine with dark chocolate, pine, well integrated oak, good acidity and structure, and a cocoa finish.

Wood, soft, smoke nose. Very soft and elegant with balanced red fruit. A soft elegant finish. Delightful!

Ein eleganter und sehr ausgeglichener Wein, den Sie schon in seinen jungen Jahren genießen können. Er ist reif, fruchtig und gehaltvoll mit schönen Aromen von roten Beeren und Veilchen.

Blackberry, currant and mineral lead to a medium-to-full body, with ripe tannins and a caressing finish. Balanced and pretty. Best after 2013. 13,885 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Prieure-Lichine 6000ml
