Chateau Prieure-Lichine “Confidences de Prieure-Lichine”, Margaux 2018
A Grand Cru Classe of Margaux located on the left bank of Bordeaux, Chateau Prieure-Lichine has succeeded in producing a beautiful 2018 vintage of their Grand Vin, one highlighting the exceptional personality of Cabernet Sauvignon. The Grand Vin of the property, the Chateau Prieure-Lichine 2018 rewarded all the efforts made by the technical teams of the property. The 2018 vintage required constant attention and a very precise monitoring of each plot. The grape harvest yielded very high-quality and perfectly healthy fruit.
The emblematic grape of the Medoc, Cabernet Sauvignon (65%) makes up the majority of the blend of the Chateau Prieure-Lichine 2018, supplemented by Merlot (30%) and Petit-Verdot (5%). In this vintage with a sunny and dry end of the season, Cabernet Sauvignon expressed itself perfectly, revealing the identity of the great terroir of Margaux.

WINE TASTING NOTES
The deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Prieure-Lichine slips sensuously out of the glass with gorgeous raspberry coulis, chocolate-covered cherries and warm cassis scents with hints of candied violets, licorice, camphor and wilted roses. The full-bodied, richly fruited palate is beautifully perfumed with loads of floral accents and has a firm frame of ripe, grainy tannins, finishing long with some mineral notions coming through. Very pretty.
