Chateau Prieure-Lichine 2015
2015 will go down in the history of Prieur Lichine’s vintages as one of extreme refinement, brought by ripe Cabernet Sauvignon and amazing density. The wines show modern-style profiles with a flavorsome and powerful palate. Unquestionably, the end of season weather helped make 2015 a stand-out vintage in its time with good balances, fabulous aromatic precision and rarely achieved density on the palate. Most definitely a great vintage for Margaux and fpr Prieur -Lichine. Some very ripe dark-plum aromas with a wealth of sweet spices and earthy notes. The palate has an impressively rich, suave and smooth core of black fruit with a powerful palate that delivers concentrated and intense structure. This is superb Margaux. Try from 2022. This is a perfumed wine, rich in black currants and acidity as well as firm tannins. It is concentrated and dense while also elegant. The aftertaste boosts the ripe fruit and balanced acidity. Drink from 2025. The 2015 Prieur -Lichine has really come together over the last two years. Sumptuous, bold and racy, with no hard edges or angular contours, the 2015 is all class. The purity of the flavors is striking. Bright floral and spice notes perk up the red stone fruit nicely in this sensual, silky Margaux. All the elements simply fall into place. This is the first vintage St phane Derenoncourt and his team made in the new cellar. In 2015 Prieur -Lichine, is a total knock-out. Don’t miss it.
