4th Grand Cru Classé in 1855

- +

2014 was a beautiful wine year in Bordeaux, marked by contrasting weather conditions. The flowering of the vines was homogeneous thanks to a sunny spring, then the summer alternated between a beautiful July and a cooler August. September and October were very nice and had warm and sunny days, offering berries of a very good quality.

Blend of the 2014 vintage: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot.

The dress is a very beautiful deep red color, dressed with tiled reflections.

The nose reveals a very nice freshness with a bouquet combining black fruits, kirsch cherry, peppery spices and licorice. We also perceive a floral touch of faded rose.

The attack is precise, revealing an ample and consistent wine supported by silky tannins. Evolving in aromatic depth, with greedy notes of ripe fruits and a beautiful acidity, it melts in delicacy on a long finish with roasted notes.

Food and wine pairing:

Chateau Prieuré-Lichine 2014 would be a wonderful accompaniment to beef tenderloin with Chimichurri sauce, grilled leg of lamb, dove salmis, or duck filet and smoked celery.

For a pairing with cheese, choose pressed and uncooked cheeses: cantal, old mimolette, morbier, saint-nectaire and tomme de Savoie.

For dessert, enjoy it with a tiramisu, a Grand Cru chocolate tartlet or an Opera cake.

Cellaring potential and tasting:

Château Prieuré-Lichine 2014 can wait another 5-6 years in the cellar to refine its potential, reaching its peak between 2028 and 2030.

However, it lends itself perfectly to tasting right now. To do so, take care to place the bottle the night before in the serving room at room temperature. Open it and decant it at least 3 to 4 hours before tasting.

The bottles will be kept in the cellar protected from the light, lying down, at an optimal hygrometric degree of 70%.

It was the Benedictine monks of the abbey of Saint Pierre de Vertheuil in the 15th century who created this priory on some 4 hectares divided between vines and food crops.

Located in Cantenac en cru Margaux, the castle was formerly called Prieuré-Cantenac and it was only in 1953 that the owner added his name to prieuré-cantenac to call it prieuré-lichine.

The vineyard did not flourish until the 18th century and today it extends over 70 hectares.

This château is a fourth Grand Cru classified according to the prestigious 1855 list.

The average age of the vines is around 30 years and the vineyard is based on fine gravel soil and a gravel subsoil. Grape variety: Cabernet Sauvignon: 56%, Merlot noir: 34%, and Petit Verdot 10%.

All the harvest is manual and production, depending on the year, revolves around 377 barrels or approximately 450,000 bottles or 6,400 to 6,500 bottles per hectare. The wine is aged for the whole in barrels, 50% of which are new for 18 to 20 months depending on the vintage.
