Tasting Notes

  • BURG

    Burghound, May 2011,
    Score: 91-93

    An elegant nose that is quite floral also reflect notes of plum and cassis that is in keeping with the ripe, rich, pure and refined middle weight flavors that possess a seductive mid-palate as well as a lacy but detailed and mineral-driven finish where a touch of wood surfaces. This classy effort is a combination of power and finesse that should improve for up to a decade.Drink: 2017+

Producer

Château le Prieuré

Situated in the commune of Cantenac, Chatâteau Prieure-Lichine is one of the larger estates, at 68ha, in the appellation of Margaux. It earned status of 4eme Cru Classe in the 1855 classification. Having had a large succession of owners in a short time the vineyard deteriorated until Alexis Lichine, the great wine writer and authority, purchased the dilapidated land of only 11Ha, in 1951 and undertook a large scale overhaul, with much investment in both the vineyards and the cellar. Building the estate to the its present size. Following his death in 1989, his son, Sacha took the reins and brought in oenologist Michel Rolland as consultant. In 1999 the estate was sold to Groupe Ballande (who should ensure the necessary continued investment).The wine is typically a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. After fermentation in concrete and steel vats, the wine is matured in oak barriques, of which 55% are new, then the wine lies for up to 18 months before blending and bottling.

Region

Volnay

A red wine appellation only, wines from Volnay might be considered the most revered of southern Burgundy. They have been celebrated since the 18th century for their delicacy. But they are not fruit forward like those of Beaune or Chorey Lès Beaune nor have the brooding structure of Pommard.Instead, they have superb linearity, focus and poise while sheathed in velvety tannin. This slightly reticent personality comes out even more with a bit of age, though some can be approached very young. There are no grand cru vineyards in Volnay, but there are some excellent premier cru examples including Volnay Les Champans and Volnay Les Caillerets. Chardonnay grown in the shared Santenots vineyard must be labelled as Meursault.
