(2006 Vintage) Perhaps even better than the 2005, the 2006 exhibits similar lemon rind and dried apple notes with perhaps even more fruit this vintage. A drink now white Bordeaux from a serious producer. Excellent.

    (2005 Vintage) The finest Prieure-Lichine I have ever tasted, the sensational 2005 has unquestionably benefitted from the improvements made at this property as well as the consultation work of Stephane Derenoncourt. Its dense purple color is accompanied by a glorious perfume of forest floor, blackberries, incense, and cassis. Opulent, with sweet tannin for the vintage, excellent purity, and a savory, broad, expansive mouthfeel that lingers on the palate, it possesses the delicacy of a terrific Margaux as well as enough concentration and power to give it an extra dimension. This wine should be drinkable read more...in 4ndash;5 years, and last for 25 or more. Bravo!    (hide)
