Le Cloître du Chateau Prieuré-Lichine Margaux 2004

Member Review by tabednar:

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.

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

Lovely, fresh and pure red berry fruit aromas on the nose. Bright and youthful brambly fruit on the palate. Well balanced with a long clean finish. Good quality and great value!
