The Prieure-Lichine 2009 commands attention, a product of ideal weather conditions that began in the summer. Long, meticulous vinifications allowed for the perfect combination of round, opulent expressions of Merlot with elegant structure from Cabernet Sauvignon. Fleshy, voluptuous, and intense fruits flavors lead to a phenomenally balanced finish. Prieure-Lichine 2009 promises to be a wine with an outstanding aging potential.

Parker : 93 / 100
Wine Spectator : 91 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The soft, sexy 2009 exhibits a dense plum/purple color along with a big, sweet bouquet of raspberries, black cherries, black currants, smoke and forest floor. Opulent and round with an attractive viscosity as well as outstanding purity, depth and length, it should drink well for two decades. While not one of the longest lived wines of the vintage, it is among the most precocious, flattering and charming at present.
