Prieure Lichine

flagBordeaux / France

A vintage that celebrated the thirty-fifth harvest for the late Alexis Lichine, this wine has turned out very impressively. The wine still has a dark garnet color with only a bit of lightening at the edge. The wine exhibits notes of mineral, smoked herbs, and sweet red and black currant fruits in addition to a hint of licorice. The wine is medium-bodied, very concentrated for a Prieure-Lichine, with surprising muscle and tannic power. The wine is just reaching its plateau of maturity, where it should last for at least 5-10 years. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010. Last tasted, 3/01. Jan 2003, www.robertparker.com
