Chateau Prieure-Lichine 2002
This wine may ultimately be superior to the 2003. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a sexy concoction of melted licorice, black cherries, and currants intermixed with hints of tobacco, spice box, and earth. With medium body, excellent ripeness, and a pure, concentrated finish,
Winespectator / James Suckling (88)
Plum and sweet tobacco aromas follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. Slightly hollow midpalate but a high quality wine.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
