Winemaker Notes

2015 will go down in the history of Prieuré Lichine's vintages as one of extreme refinement, brought by ripe Cabernet Sauvignon and amazing density. The wines show modern-style profiles with a flavorsome and powerful palate. Unquestionably, the end of season weather helped make 2015 a stand-out vintage in its time with good balances, fabulous aromatic precision and rarely achieved density on the palate. Most definitely a great vintage for Margaux and fpr Prieuré-Lichine.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 96
James Suckling
Some very ripe dark-plum aromas with a wealth of sweet spices and earthy notes. The palate has an impressively rich, suave and smooth core of black fruit with a powerful palate that delivers concentrated and intense structure. This is superb Margaux. Try from 2022.
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
This is a perfumed wine, rich in black currants and acidity as well as firm tannins. It is concentrated and dense while also elegant. The aftertaste boosts the ripe fruit and balanced acidity. Drink from 2025.
V 95
Vinous
The 2015 Prieuré-Lichine has really come together over the last two years. Sumptuous, bold and racy, with no hard edges or angular contours, the 2015 is all class. The purity of the flavors is striking. Bright floral and spice notes perk up the red stone fruit nicely in this sensual, silky Margaux. All the elements simply fall into place. This is the first vintage Stéphane Derenoncourt and his team made in the new cellar. In 2015 Prieuré-Lichine, is a total knock-out. Don't miss it.
D 92
Decanter
Beautifully concentrated black fruits on the nose and palate – a classy and elegant blend.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Lovely dark currant and plum reduction notes are carried by velvety tannins, with a light charcoal shading on the finish. Suave. Barrel Sample: 89-92 pts
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Prieuré-Lichine has a tightly wound bouquet, crisp and a little leaner than some of its Margaux compadres. It just feels contained at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with gruff tannin on the entry. There is respectable depth here, but it feels linear and rather predictable towards the blackberry and cedar finish. I would like to see more complexity and personality come through by the time of bottling. It feels a bit bolshie at the moment. Barrel Sample: 88-90 pts

Chateau Prieure-Lichine, France
Chateau Prieure-Lichine Winery Image
Chateau Prieuré-Lichine's vast vineyard holdings (70 hectares) are located on some of the best gravelly outcrops in all five communes of the Margaux appellation. Owned by the Ballande group since June 1999, this estate is currently undergoing a major transformation in order to enhance the reputation of its superb terroir even further.

The vine density at Prieuré-Lichine is quite high, and the vineyard is carefully managed plot by plot. The grapes are completely picked by hand into small crates and carefully gone over on a sorting table prior to crushing. Only the ripest, healthiest grapes are used. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. The entire winemaking process is devoted to bringing out the charm, elegance and finesse characteristic of the finest wines in the Margaux appellation.
