2015 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)
This is really exceptional this year. Full body, very velvety tannins, wet earth, mushroom and currant character. Very stoney. Very long and flavorful. Greatest wine in the history of the estate.
The 2015 Prieuré-Lichine is all class. Nuanced, delicate and silky in the glass, the 2015 speaks to the finesse that is such a signature of Margaux. All the elements are in the right place. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice and floral notes mesh together in an effortless, gracious wine with a bright future. This is the first vintage Stephane Derenoncourt and his team made in the new cellar. Tasted two times. (AG)
This is a ripe, fruity wine that is initially so smooth in character. The tannins move in slowly to give just the right amount of structure to sustain the black currant fruits and ample acidity. The wine's overall balance suggests a promising future. (RV)
Lovely dark currant and plum reduction notes are carried by velvety tannins, with a light charcoal shading on the finish. Suave. Web Only - 2016 (JM)
A Stéphane Derenoncourt wine. Bright crimson. Particularly refreshing. Well balanced and lively. Very juicy and energetic. Great balance. Lovely persistence.
