Château Prieuré Lichine, fourth classified growth of the Margaux appellation, is situated on a 70 ha vineyard straddling five communes. Its vineyard, made up of gravelly Günzian soils, is worked on a plot-by-plot basis using the principles of sustainable viticulture.
The vineyard's grape varieties are dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (63%), supplemented by Merlot (32%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The vines have an average age of 30 years.
After manual harvesting followed by a meticulous sorting (on a sorting table and then optically), the fruits are fermented in vats without crushing for about 30 days before being aged in oak barrels (50% new and 50% one wine).
In the glass, Château Prieuré Lichine 2017 has a deep, intense purple colour with garnet tints. On the nose, it distils a fruity and floral bouquet. The scents of black fruits mingle with delicate rose fragrances as well as subtle touches of gourmet spices.
On the palate, Château Prieuré Lichine 2017 offers a moderately full-bodied attack followed by a rich, full-bodied mid-palate bursting with aromas of blackberries and juicy black cherries. The freshness of the fruit is supported by a velvety texture. The fruity aromas quickly coat the tongue and the inside of the cheeks to end on a rich, elegant and remarkably long finish.
Stéphane Derenoncourt's team has succeeded in producing a magnificent 2017 vintage that will go wonderfully well with beef, veal or leg of lamb with garlic.
