Château Prieure Lichine Margaux 2012
|Brand||Château Prieure Lichine|
Wine EnthusiastVery structured and dark, this is a wine for the long haul. It is concentrated and balanced, still very young and only just hinting at the black fruits that show the rich potential of this wine. Drink from 2020.
Wine AdvocatePerforming much better from bottle than barrel, this is a super effort from Prieuré Lichine. This inky purple-colored wine displays beautiful floral-infused blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as cassis. It is medium to full-bodied, stunningly pure, gorgeously textured, and quite long and impressive. This is a top success in the vintage, capable of lasting 20 or more years.
Wine SpectatorOffers a plush mouthfeel, with substantial yet velvety tannins carrying the dark plum, blackberry and black cherry notes. Ganache and Black Forest cake hints line the finish, while the fruit pushes through nicely. The combination of dressed-up style and accessibility will win this many fans. Drink now through 2020. 10,833 cases made.
