Château Prieuré-Lichine 2010

History of the Castle It is in the Romanesque period that the monks of the Abbey of Vertheuil founded the Priory of Cantenac, which produces wines from its inception. In the fifteenth century, the first mention of the Priory Cantenac wine appear. Under the First Empire, Durand Delains becomes owner of the area and started the restructuring of vineyards, making progress in quality. Thus in 1855, the wine Cantenac Priory between the Grand ranking as the 4th Grand Cru Classé. Many diseases then take place on the field, which comes out in the interwar period, then collapses again during the Great Depression. Resumption of heritage In 1951, Alexis Lichine, nicknamed the pope wine, takes possession of the area and give it its name in 1953. That year, he vinified his first crop and then modernized facilities, rebuilt the old residence. He passed away in 1989 at the Priory Lichine. Today the estate belongs to Ballande group, which continues the history of the Priory Lichine giving it a new impetus. Local teams of Castle Ballande group work in respect of the soil, in order to enhance and sustain in the virtues. The greatest care is taken in this gift of nature, vineyards preserved in tradition. Each vintage is a unique vintage, result of the work of man and nature in perfect harmony.

TASTING NOTES:
Beautiful floral-infused black fruits jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/purple-colored wine. Possibly richer, denser, and even more complete than the brilliant 2005.

Philosophy: "To develop a different approach to the vineyard to be more responsive to local and vines, and manage our fragmented diversity as an asset."

Gault Millau is Margaux Medoc its roundness and its structure. Very complex, playing the modernism of generous fruit on a classic mineral structure. A great 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.

In a wine bar.
Cherry red, clean colour. Fantastic smell of roses. In the mouth it is thick enough.

I drank with my best friend.
The colour was between red and brown. Nice smell like nuts. Light wine, more than expected.
With roast lamb fell rather mild.
