A wine of total finesse, the 2014 Prieur‚-Lichine boasts striking purity in its fruit. The flavors are bright and floral throughout, with plenty of red currant, cherry and raspberry. There is virtually no sensation of tannin. Although perhaps not super-complex, the 2014 is impeccably balanced and harmonious from the very first taste. I imagine the 2014 will drink well with minimal cellaring, as it is already quite open-knit and expressive. This is a very strong showing from Prieur‚-Lichine and consulting winemakers St‚phane Derenoncourt and Julien Lavenu. The blend is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Tasted twice.

The Château Prieuré-Lichine 2014 has a rather standoffish nose at first, but with a few swirls of the glass it opens up to reveal blackcurrant, raspberry and cassis scents with a light estuary influence just underneath (perhaps a whiff from the Gironde?) The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, lighter in style than other Margaux, but elegant and focused, the finish very harmonious with assiduously integrated new oak. Very fine. Tasted twice with consistent notes. eRobertParker.com.April, 2015

Beautiful concentration and depth to this red with blueberry, blackberry and licorice character. Full and structured with strength and finesse. James Suckling. April, 2015.

A pretty, floral, Margaux nose. Ripe fruit. Light in the mouth though no shortage of weight. Sweet fruit. Good. Joss Fowler, FINE+RARE, April 2015.
