Chateau Prieure-Lichine Margaux 2014
Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot
Powerful tannins and ripe fruit notes set this wine up for a rich future. It has a dark, brooding quality, with smooth wood flavors and a creamy black-cherry aftertaste. This is a fragrant and very attractive mid-weight wine with plenty of ripe fruit to balance the full, dry tannins, which give it some real power on the finish. Drink or hold.
Château Prieuré-Lichine has consistently produced one of Margaux's top wines. Never over-reaching, this château defines the appellation like few others can. The 2014 vintage is so alive and pure. The wine shows bright red fruits, lots of spice, and plenty of earth. There is no mistaking this Old World Bordeaux effort. The tangy finish pairs it perfectly with savory-seasoned roast chicken.
