2015 will go down in the history of Prieuré Lichine's vintages as one of extreme refinement, brought by ripe Cabernet Sauvignon and amazing density. The wines show modern-style profiles with a flavorsome and powerful palate. Unquestionably, the end of season weather helped make 2015 a stand-out vintage in its time with good balances, fabulous aromatic precision and rarely achieved density on the palate.
Region: Margaux, Bordeaux, France
Grape: 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot
Tasting Notes: Some very ripe dark-plum aromas with a wealth of sweet spices and earthy notes. The palate has an impressively rich, suave and smooth core of black fruit with a powerful palate that delivers concentrated and intense structure. This is superb Margaux.
