Chateau Prieure-Lichine 2011

 A case of 12 Bottles (750ML)

Prieure-Lichine 2011 was born in a complex vintage year. The unique potential of Prieure-Lichine vineyard made, once again, all the difference during unusually challenging times. In the end, this atypical vintage produced distinguished, powerful Cabernets with astonishing effects on the hue and on the concentration. On the other hand, the Merlot brought volume, flesh, and opulence to the mid-palate. Chateau Prieure-Lichine 2011 is filled with charm and accessible. Margaux enthusiasts will be delighted to enjoy this wine while patiently waiting for 2009 and 2010 to peak.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Typically, the quintessential feminine side of Margaux is represented by Prieure-Lichine-s 2011. Floral, raspberry, black cherry and currant notes intermixed with spice box are present in this deep ruby/purple-colored effort. The richness builds incrementally and becomes more impressive than it initially seems. A well-made, supple-textured, delicious 2011, it is an undeniable success for the vintage. Enjoy it over the next 15+ years.
