"This is one of my favourite (and better value) châteaux from the famous Margaux commune.

"When this property hired Stéphane Derenoncourt, the famous and hugely-respected wine consultant, this estate's quality went to a whole new level.

"The other Margaux estates making wine of this quality all cost more."

94 The 2014 Prieuré-Lichine is just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. Silky, perfumed, and gracious on the palate, the wine exudes class. Sweet floral and spice notes meld into a core of red stone fruit, and silky tannins and vivid flavours lead into a creamy and inviting finish. I would prefer to cellar the 2014 for at least a few years, but it is quite beautiful and polished even at this early stage. The blend is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot. This is a very strong showing from Prieuré-Lichine and consulting winemakers Stéphane Derenoncourt and Julien Lavenu. Tasted two times.
