Prieure Lichine 94js 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The strongest Prieure Lichine produced in many years, along with consultant Stephane Derenoncourt, the proprietors have fashioned a wine with true opulence as well as wonderful projected aromatics of blue, red and black fruits, licorice, flowers and subtle oak. Silky tannins, a sexy, generous, opulent attack, mid-palate and finish, no hard edges and well-integrated acidity, tannin and alcohol (14.5%) are all found in this impressive Margaux. Give it 2-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25. It is potentially one of the longest lived wines made at Prieure Lichine since some of their classic efforts from the sixties...92-94" WA 05/11 "An amped-up style, with dark, weighty, frankly toasty layers of blackberry, plum and currant fruit giving way to black licorice on the finish. Offers more raw power than finesse and relies on toast more than acidity, but this is a solid example of the style...89-92 (BT)" WS Web Only 2011 "Aromas of blueberries and blackberries with hints of sliced mushroom. Full and round with chewy tannins. Give this four or five years to soften. Tight and structured...94" JamesSuckling.com 02/13

Ein Wein mit dichter Konzentation, Röstaromatik und fast kalifornischer Cabernet-Wucht. Schon in der Jugend bereitet dieser Wein Trinkspass.

55% cabernet sauvignon 40% merlot and 5% petit verdot. Aged in 15% new oak for 18 months. The nose displays abundant chocolate with roast coffee and blackberry. Flavors of cinnamon and red cherry grace the surprisingly lush mid-palate. Great structure and integration here. Shows power but with superb freshness. A gorgeous wine! Alex Lallos.



Tasting Notes:

"Very fragrant, apricot, mirabelle plum, amylic aroma, sweet, spicy on the palate, quite fat and oaky, long, cognac on the finish." (Jacques Dupont, Le Point: 14/20)
