Château Prieuré-Lichine 2004

Bordeaux - Margaux - Red - 13° Château Prieuré-Lichine Château Prieuré-Lichine 2004 1017/04
  • Parker : 90
  • J. Robinson : 16
Chateau Prieure-Lichine's large, 70-hectare vineyard stretches over five villages in the Margaux appellation. Acquired by the Balland group in June 1999, the estate has greatly benefited from the new owners' efforts since that date. Vineyard plots are managed separately to make the most of each one, and Biological pest control is used. The grapes are picked by hand into small crates. They are destemmed without crushing, sorted on specially-adapted tables before being put into vat, and malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel, where the lees are stirred with a stick. Our philosophy: to introduce a new approach to viticulture in order to be more in tune with the terroir, and to consider the diversity of our soils as an advantage.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A sleeper of the vintage, the deep ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Prieure-Lichine is all about finesse and flavor intensity. Not a blockbuster, but rather a wine of sensual appeal, it offers superb aromatics of cherry liqueur, underbrush, cedar, and spring flowers. Silky and soft, with medium body, beautiful fruit, and a depth that builds incrementally, this consumer-friendly Margaux can be enjoyed over the next 12-15 years. This defines charm.
