Château Prieure-Lichine Margaux Grand Cru Classé 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Blueberry and spices on the nose. Full to medium body, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Lacks a tiny bit of a center palate... 89-90" JS 04/12 "Clean and direct in profile, with polished blackberry and black currant fruit melded with a chocolate note. Stays polished through the finish, if a touch light...88-91" WS 04/12 "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...90-93" WA 04/12
