Prieure-Lichine 2010 is a vintage that best translates the unique terroir from Margaux. This wine expresses the exquisite combination of dense and complex Cabernets Sauvignons -slow, steady maturation- and opulent Merlots. Daily temperature variations, especially cooler nights before the harvest, certainly contributed to the precise, pure aromas of this wine. As one of Medoc’s rarest 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.
