- Confidences de Prieure-Lichine Margaux 2010 Product #30918 (In Stock)
The second wine of Prieure-Lichine is a stunning value in drink right now Margaux. A 40/60% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend from the estate's younger vines with 14 months in second and third use French oak.
"Layered, with plush flavors of plum, blackberry and black currant preserves offset by firmer charcoal, black tea leaf and warm stone notes. Approachable now but should mellow with mid-term cellaring. Drink now through 2020."Wine Spectator 90 points
- Ch Prieure-lichine Margaux 2010 Product #29000 (In Stock)
Young, but already delicious with an hour in decanter. A fine, robust, Margaux.
"Aromas of blueberries and blackberries with hints of sliced mushroom. Full and round with chewy tannins." James Suckling 94 points
"A beautiful example of wine from this estate, which is using well-known consultant Stephane Derenoncourt, finished 2010 at 14.5% natural alcohol, and seems to be one of the sexier, more developed and evolved styles of the vintage. Dense purple, with loads of blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as hints of smoke and subtle charred wood, this wine is expansive, round, generous, lush and multi-dimensional. This beauty can be drunk now or cellared for 15-20 years."Wine Advocate 92 points
