Prieure Lichine 2005
Tasting Notes and Scores
This deliciously sexy, seductive style of wine from Prieure-Lichine is very much in keeping with how this wine can perform in a top vintage, offering lush fruit, sweet tannin and a silky, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel with notes of flowers, blue, red and black fruits, some underbrush and loamy soil nuances. Suave, round and juicy, this wine has reached its mature period, and should stay there for at least another 5-10+ years.

Tasted single blind at Southwold. This has a more delicate nose here with black berries, dark cherries and violets but lacking some vigour. The palate is very ripe, fine tannins, nice weight, overtly ‘modern’ in style with lavish new oak although it is very linear and lacking some personality towards the finish. This tasted better in barrel and I hope that it will improve with further bottle age. Drink 2012-2028. Tasted January 2009.
