Château Prieuré-Lichine Margaux Grand Cru Classé 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Barrel sample. Firmly tannic and dry, the wine has density, a dry core and complex structure. With a firm character, not yet hinting at fruit...89-91" WE 4/13 "Plenty of good and ripe fruit here. Full body, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Balanced and pretty. I like it slightly better than the 2012...90-91" JamesSuckling.com 04/13

Attractive depth on the nose which reveals tobacco, briar and aromas of fruit that are a bit on the wild side. Showing big crushed berry fruit on entry, this is rich and plump with fine tannins. Polished, very civilized with a bit of power to it, though the finish is soft an elegant. Texturally this is quite appealing, and there is attractive depth of fruit, it just lacks a bit of detail in the mouth. 89pts
