The finest Prieure-Lichine I have ever tasted, the sensational 2005 has unquestionably benefitted from the improvements made at this property as well as the consultation work of Stephane Derenoncourt. Its dense purple color is accompanied by a glorious perfume of forest floor, blackberries, incense, and cassis. Opulent, with sweet tannin for the vintage, excellent purity, and a savory, broad, expansive mouthfeel that lingers on the palate, it possesses the delicacy of a terrific Margaux as well as enough concentration and power to give it an extra dimension. This wine should be drinkable in 4–5 years, and last for 25 or more. Bravo!
[Barrel tasting] Blackberry and coffee aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a medium finish. Showing a lot of wood now, but serious fruit.
(Barrel tasting) Blackberry and coffee aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a medium finish. Showing a lot of wood now, but serious fruit.
Undeniably the finest Prieure-Lichine in 30ndash;40 years, this textured, rich, medium to full-bodied 2000 boasts a dark ruby/purple color in addition to a knock-out nose of black cherries, cassis, tobacco leaf, cocoa, and toasty oak in the background. The wine is sweet on the attack, full-bodied, and well-textured, with oodles of fruit and glycerin. This is sexy stuff that can be drunk early, but will age gracefully for 15ndash;16 years. Anticipated maturity: 2004ndash;2026. Bravo!
A wonderfully balanced and harmonious wine. Beautiful rose, floral and fruit aromas. medium- to full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, fruity vanilla aftertaste. Best after 2000.
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.
Aged 7 months in French Oak.
Notes: 50% new oak barrels
