The Story

This relatively high proportion of Merlot is accounted for by the fact that the Margaux appellation is located within a part of the Médoc peninsular where soils have more clay and less deep gravel, and are better suited to the balance of this varietal. All the finesse of the Merlot is brought out on these clay soils, unlike the Cabernet Sauvignon which performs best on well-drained deep gravel soils.

Written Notes

Chateau Prieure Lichine: Rich ripen dark fruit and berries in aroma, but with more red berries and plum in the palate. Hint of toast can be found. Medium body with lots of freshness. Elegant and nice! 91-93
  • 92p
Medium deep colour. Cherry kirch, redcurrant fruits with aniseed notes. Well-balanced wine but elegantly styled with sweet red cherry redcurrant fruits, fine looseknit chalky textures, savoury oak notes. Finishes firm and tight. A touch underpowered and confected. 91 points
  • 91p
Dark purple red with violet hue and almost black core. Excellent nose with pure fruit, blackcurrant and blackberries, hints of vanilla and toasted brioche in the background. On the palate well structured with juicy fruit, vanilla and discreet hints of mild spices. Succulent mouthfeel.
