Le Cloître du Château Prieuré-Lichine, AOC Margaux 2018Regular price €60.00
‘The deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Prieure-Lichine slips sensuously out of the glass with gorgeous raspberry coulis, chocolate-covered cherries and warm cassis scents with hints of candied violets, licorice, camphor and wilted roses.’
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate, April 2019
The second wine of Château Prieuré-Lichine, made with the fruit of younger vines than the Château wine, but with the same attention to detail in the vineyard and the cellar, under the consultant direction of Stéphane Derenoncourt.
‘The 2018 Prieuré-Lichine is gorgeous. Bright and racy in the glass, the 2018 impresses with its magnificent purity of fruit. In 2018, Prieuré-Lichine has terrific energy and cut. It is perhaps a bit less creamy than the 2016, but also impeccable in its balance. Part of that is driven by the higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend in 2018. Rose petal, lavender, mint and spice add nuance to a core of red/purplish fruit. Tasted two times.’
92–95/100, Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, May 2019
Vigorous, spicy, cedar nose with well-judged oak, black fruit, liquorice, chocolate and floral perfume. Very sleek and supple wine with everything in the right place. Poised, with a fine attack, silky texture and beautiful balance. Try this special bottle with steak, a soft, unctuous ratatouille or any meaty stew.
