Château Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux 4CC
Decanter average score: 17.25pts/20 (90+/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: SB 17.5 AG 16.5 SS 18
Very good concentration and depth of fruit, with a hint of violets behind. A touch soft on the palate – very concentrated and chocolatey – yet neither too heavy nor too extracted. A big wine for Margaux, but has freshness and flair.
