Château Prieuré-Lichine

Chteau Prieur-Lichine

Ref: A036209

4eme Cru Classé Margaux (Cantenac)

Following the sale of Prieuré-Lichine by Sacha Lichine to the Ballande group in 1999, the estate has been run by Jean-Claude de Terry and who has very much continued the progress begun by the Lichine family. Widely acclaimed as being even finer than the excellent 2005, this is indeed a majestic 2009 with an enticing violets and black cheery nose and a penetrating silky fruit flamboyance with hyper-fine tannins and a long, fresh finish. A first-class Margaux which will entertain at all stages of its life. [Drink: 2016-2030]

The vineyard was first established by monks, the Priors of Cantenac, some 400 years ago. The property was taken over by Alexis Lichine in 1951and subsequently renamed from Prieuré-Catenac to Prieuré-Lichine. Alexis Lichine was renowned as the author of 'The Encyclopaedia of Wines and Spirits' which is still an important reference book today.

Today the property is owned by the Ballande group and the consultant oenologists are Michel Rolland and Stéphanie Derrenoncourt.

Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
