An iconic property of the Margaux appellation on the left bank of Bordeaux, Château Prieuré-Lichine bears witness to a prestigious heritage.
With its 77.5 hectares of vines, Château Prieuré-Lichine is at the head of a vineyard with an extraordinary terroir. Planted on Garonne gravel typical to the Margaux appellation, the vines, aged by 30 years on average, benefit from an exceptional terroir.
After a cold and dry winter, the crop cycle began rapidly and regularly in March. The frosty spell on 27 April affected a third of the Château Prieuré-Lichine vineyard. 40% to 100% of the potential harvest was destroyed. The sunshine and milder conditions in early May encouraged rapid vine development. Flowering took place in good conditions, with an excellent state of health. Heavy rainfall at the end of June guaranteed sufficient water reserves. Despite these difficult conditions, the exceptional Margaux terroir produced high-quality, aromatic grapes, with silky tannins.
Winemaking and ageing
Harvests in crates. Vibrating sorting table. Manual and optical sorting. No crushing. Ageing is carried out in barrels, of which 50% are new barrels and 50% are barrels of one previous wine.
The 2017 Château Prieuré-Lichine is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (63%), Merlot (32%), Petit Verdot (5%).
The 2017 Château Prieuré-Lichine seduces with its fineness and its sophistication as well as its aromatic palette, combined with a greatly delicate tannic structure.
