    Prieure-Lichine 2005 is a blend of 55% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot. The fabulous fresh fruits bouquet reflects the spirit and charm of the vintage. Stéphane Derenoncourt's talent contributed to the elegance of this wine. Complex, round, with wood notes integrated the tannins while the acidity provides balance. The superior 2005 vintage retains powerful aromas, beautiful structure, precision, and incredible charm: a cross between 1985 and 1996.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    This deliciously sexy, seductive style of wine from Prieure-Lichine is very much in keeping with how this wine can perform in a top vintage, offering lush fruit, sweet tannin and a silky, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel with notes of flowers, blue, red and black fruits, some underbrush and loamy soil nuances. Suave, round and juicy, this wine has reached its mature period, and should stay there for at least another 5-10+ years.
