“Magnificent Margaux: 'A Total Knockout. Don't Miss It.'”

"A Total Knockout. Don't Miss It." A. Galloni

By David Gettenberg

This is a "vintage worth making a fuss about." Jancis Robinson

From the best Bordeaux vintage in nearly a decade, the 2015 Chateau Prieure-Lichine is one heck of a Bordeaux. We sold out of this wine last year and a new tranche has just arrived from France in limited quantities.

This 4th Growth Margaux drinks like a Bordeaux 3x its price.  It has concentrated, ripe fruit with plum overtones followed by earth, spice, and robust tannins.  Now five years old, it is drinking beautifully. 

"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... In 2015 Prieuré-Lichine is a total knock-out. Don't miss it."Antonio Galloni

This Left Bank Bordeaux is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance Merlot and Petit Verdot.  Delicious now, you can enjoy it over the next 20 years. 

Under $100, there are few Bordeaux that impress like the 2015 Prieure-Lichine. 

Extremely limited.  

Enjoy!

Press & Tasting Notes
96

“This is superb Margaux.”

James Suckling • 96 / 100

"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."

“One of the best vintages I have tried from Prieure Lichine.”

Decanter • 96 / 100

"One of the best vintages I have tried from Prieure Lichine - this was excellent during en primeur and even more so now it's in bottle. Restrained elegance and precision are on display, balancing out the oozing, rich damson fruit and the well placed liquorice edging. Well balanced, the fruit is cleanly cut and held, the ripe black fruits spliced in two. Poised, with good ripeness, a standout for me. "

“In 2015, Prieuré-Lichine is a total knock-out. Don't miss it.”

Vinous • 95 / 100

"The 2015 Prieuré-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 Stéphane Derenoncourt and his team made in the new cellar. In 2015, Prieuré-Lichine is a total knock-out. Don't miss it."
