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!

Wow. This shows a wonderful core of intense ripe fruit and velvety tannins. Loads of berry chocolate and toasted oak. A joy to taste young.

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.

From a blend of 5% Cabernet Sauvignon 45% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot the perfume offers aromas of cassis earth flowers and spice. Full bodied with soft tannins the rich cassis feminine wine ends with an elegant finish.

Densely tannic although with the fruit weight to sustain the wine. It is packed with ripe flavors very berry very firm finishing with juiciness.

A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot raised in 50% new oak the Prieure-Lichine has intense blackberry burnt toast and sous-bois on the nose tobacco developing with time. The palate is better than the nose suggests with fine edgy tannins a little hardness that will soften during elevage cedar-infused broody black fruit towards the tannic finish. Very masculine like many Margaux wine but very well made.

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... 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. -J.M.
