A renaissance has been taking place at Prieure-Lichine since esteemed winemaking guru Stephane Derenoncourt was brought in to oversee the wines’ vinification and upbringing. This is a complicated, morsellated vineyard that is neither easy to harvest nor manage, but the 2001 is an elegant blend of 49% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, and 2% Cabernet Franc. It was aged primarily on its lees, given micro-bullage while in tank, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Like many wines of this appellation, it is a pretty, delicate effort revealing a dark ruby color along with floral, red currant, cranberry, and black fruit characteristics, a medium-bodied texture, good density, and an early-drinking style. Enjoy it over the next decade. Wine Advocate.June, 2004
