Chateau Prieure-Lichine's large, 70-hectare vineyard stretches over five villages in the Margaux appellation. Acquired by the Balland group in June 1999, the estate has greatly benefited from the new owners' efforts since that date. Vineyard plots are managed separately to make the most of each one, and Biological pest control is used. The grapes are picked by hand into small crates. They are destemmed without crushing, sorted on specially-adapted tables before being put into vat, and malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel, where the lees are stirred with a stick. Our philosophy: to introduce a new approach to viticulture in order to be more in tune with the terroir, and to consider the diversity of our soils as an advantage.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Prieure-Lichine is scented of crushed blackberries, black cherries and roses with touches of cloves, cinnamon and dusty earth. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of flesh, textured by plush tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long.
