Candied violet nose with touch of volatility. Juicy palate with decent finesse and detail to the tannins. The fruit is candied and purple in character but the tannins do add freshness and there is a mineral underpinning to the wine. Well balanced, decent winemaking.
FINE+RARE Tasting Note (June 2001)
The 2019 Le Prieuré is fabulous. Rich and expansive on the palate, with striking depth, the 2019 is a real standout. Black cherry, plum, chocolate, licorice and espresso infuse the 2019 with layers of flavor that unfold with time in the glass. This is an especially sumptuous style, especially for Le Prieuré, which in the recent past has been a more restrained wine. Even so, all the elements are nicely balanced here.
