Media Reviews

Neal Martin

The 2017 Prieuré-Lichine has a light, slightly earthy bouquet that is endowed with less fruit than some of its peers. There is just a touch of greenness here, though not to a degree that bothers me. The palate is medium-bodied with fine definition, a crisp line of acidity and a pretty, quite harmonious finish. It actually finishes with more panache than I expected though it does require more length. 88-90 points

Jane Anson

This is the definition of a wine to buy in an off-vintage. It has the signature of the last few years, but in an early-drinking package. It`s a little oaky and smoky for sure, but handles it well and delivers punch and personality without overstating the case. Ripe damson fruits help to deliver impact, even if the fruit is generally a touch below the exuberance of the last two years. Planted in the vineyard to 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot. 94 points

Mid crimson. Sweet, punchy black fruit with a hint of oak char but the effect is more sav
