"A sleeper of the vintage, the deep ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Prieure-Lichine is all about finesse and flavor intensity. Not a blockbuster, but rather a wine of sensual appeal, it offers superb aromatics of cherry liqueur, underbrush, cedar, and spring flowers. Silky and soft, with medium body, beautiful fruit, and a depth that builds incrementally, this consumer-friendly Margaux can be enjoyed over the next 12-15 years. This defines charm."
Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
"Alexis Lichine's old chateau has been revolutionized in the last decade, producing wines with a diamond-like luster, polished with new wood, squeezed black currant juice fruit flavors and ripe tannins. A shiny, gleaming wine."
