Prieure-Lichine 2010 is a vintage that best expresses the unique terroir of Margaux. This wine is the result of an exquisite combination of dense and complex Cabernet Sauvignon and opulent Merlot. Daily temperature variations, especially cooler nights before the harvest, certainly contributed to the precise, pure aromas of this wine. As one of Medoc’s top wines, Chateau Prieure-Lichine 2010 is a true classic with extraordinary ageing potential. A serious contender reminiscent of 1961 and 1982: two other illustrious years for Bordeaux wines.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Dense purple, with loads of blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as hints of smoke and subtle charred wood, this wine is expansive, round, generous, lush and multi-dimensional. This beauty can be drunk now or cellared for 15-20 years.
