70 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot. Aged 50% new barrels, 50% second year barrels.
From a legendary vintage, this 1982 classic Margaux is fully mature, with a tertiary nose of brandied cherry, blond tobacco, wet earth, cedar wood. Soft, polished, medium bodied and elegant, the tannins are fully resolved, and voluptuous to drink. Pair this elegant red Bordeaux wine with a wild mushroom risotto, guinea fowl and the like.
Château Prieuré-Lichine is a jewel of the Margaux appellation. Its wines express the very essence of a world-famous terroir.
Château Prieuré-Lichine’s history is an amazing mix of different eras and styles. From the Roman origins of the property to its rebirth under the Ballande group, 500 years of historic figures and events at this estate have combined to forge its special spirit, perfectly embodied by the Pope of Wine, Alexis Lichine.
