A rich and delicate Margaux red wine

The estate

An illustrious estate in the Margaux appellation on the left bank of the Bordeaux region, Château Prieuré-Lichine testifies to a prestigious and heritage-filled history.

The vineyard

Château Prieuré-Lichine 2021 is a Margaux wine that stems from a 77.5-hectare vineyard. Planted on Garonne gravel, a typical feature of the Margaux appellation, the vines are 30 years old on average and benefit from an exceptional terroir.

The vintage

The winter was particularly mild with summer temperatures at the end of March, which favoured an early budbreak. The frost on the nights of the 6th and 7th of April had little impact on the vineyards that are dedicated to the production of the estate’s Grand Vin. The humid and mild conditions during the months of May and June preceded a mild summer, punctuated by rain in mid-September, which boosted ripening.

Vinification and ageing

Harvesting in crates. Vibrating sorting table. Manual and optical sorting. No crushing. Gravity-flow vatting. Vatting time for 25 to 28 days. Increase in alcohol levels to balance the phenolic ripeness. The wine is aged in barrels, 40% of which are new and 60% are second-fill barrels.

The blend

Château Prieuré-Lichine 2021 comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (30%) and Petit Verdot (5%).
