Reviews for 2011 Prieure-Lichine Bordeaux Blend

Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, April 2012
A perfumed wine floral and flowery. The spices and wood comes from its tannins which are very present. But there's also friendly berry fruits plum skins and on the finish acidity.-R.V.

Clean and direct in profile with polished blackberry and black currant fruit melded with a chocolate note. Stays polished through the finish if a touch light.-J.M.

Typically, the quintessential feminine side of Margaux is represented by Prieure-Lichine-s 2011. Floral, raspberry, black cherry and currant notes intermixed with spice box are present in this deep ruby/purple-colored effort. The richness builds incrementally and becomes more impressive than it initially seems. A well-made, supple-textured, delicious 2011, it is an undeniable success for the vintage. Enjoy it over the next 15+ years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Blueberry and spices on the nose. Full to medium body with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Lacks a tiny bit of a center palate.

All are hand harvested. Beautiful ruby color leads to a bright red rim. Lots of aromatic complexity on the nose with an array of red fruit including cherry dark raspberry and currant followed by graphite tar anise and lavender. The palate explodes with character and complexity with a lovely mix of red berry and baking chocolate. This should benefit nicely from a few years in the cellar and drink beautifully through 2032-2035. Stephane Derenoncourt consults.
