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.
