Prieure-Lichine 2010 is a vintage that best expresses the unique terroir of Margaux. This wine is the result of an exquisite combination of dense and complex Cabernet Sauvignon and opulent Merlot. Daily temperature variations, especially cooler nights before the harvest, certainly contributed to the precise, pure aromas of this wine. As one of Medoc’s top wines, Chateau Prieure-Lichine 2010 is a true classic with extraordinary ageing potential. A serious contender reminiscent of 1961 and 1982: two other illustrious years for Bordeaux wines.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet colored, the 2010 Prieure-Lichine opens with notes of sweaty leather, tobacco and underbrush over a core of warm red and black currants and baked plums plus a waft of bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is refreshing and chewy with plenty of earthy/savory layers and an herbal finish.
