If a wine really 'wows' you, you'll remember the special vintage. In this case, it's the wine grower that will remember 1978 forever. The harvest took places 4 weeks later than usual due to immensely cold and wet spring and summer season. But thanks to enologist Stéphane Derenoncourt Château Prieuré Lichine was able to present yet another time something worth 88 Parker points: Château Prieuré-Lichine 1978 turned out to be a great Bordeaux red wine.

Purchased at a specialized store.
I especially liked the colour. I would highlight the aromas of tobacco. Strong flavour which reminds me of strawberry candy.
