2016 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1299426 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Prieuré-Lichine is all class. Floral, silky and nuanced to the core, the 2016 is a wine of pure and total seduction. Freshly cut flowers, vibrant red fruit and creamy tannins all add to the wine's undeniable allure. In 2016, Prieuré-Lichine is all class, not to mention one of the sleepers of the vintage. Don't miss it! (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark With vineyards in the southern Margaux village of Cantenac, this estate has produced a deliciously juicy wine. The structure follows a straight line between the tannins and the intense fruit and acidity. The wine should age well, ready to drink from 2024. (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Likely to be relatively good value, there is plenty of fruit purity here, allied with concentrated red fruit on the palate, firm, ripe tannins and some classical Margaux fragrance. Quite delicate and refined, this has a fine lifted character, all very well balanced. Very good result for Prieuré-Lichine in 2016. (AH) Inner quote mark (11/2021)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A very suave, polished Margaux that delivers iodine and dark-stone aromas and a wealth of ripe, plush dark fruit that follows through to the palate in attractive, fleshy and juicy mode. Try from 2022. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Prieure-Lichine has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and a bold, intensely scented nose of warm blackcurrants, black raspberries and mulberries with hints of cedar chest, tobacco, dried herbs and iron ore. Medium-bodied, the palate has bags of class with lovely, vibrant black berries flavors and earthy sparks framed by ripe grainy tannins, finishing long and refreshing. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A restrained style, with a beam of cherry, cassis, lilac and sandalwood flavors, revealing a good fleshy feel and solid depth throughout. Light perfume and tobacco hints give the finish some added range. No fireworks here, just balance and focus. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

Deeply colored. Toasty oak and red raspberry aromas that follow to palate. Lots of wine for the price.
