2020 Château Prieuré-Lichine was released this morning En Primeur with an excellent score from James Suckling and an almost equally excellent note from Jancisrobinson.com. Suckling scores it highly for a wine at just £305 per dozen bottles in bond; 95-96 points, whilst Julia Harding MW describes it as "Fragrant with the intense aromas of cassis and spicy black plum. A little sweeter-smelling than some but also dark and savoury, with subtle oak spice and char. Even a light floral note entwined with all that dark fruit....Full in the mouth but nicely dry and fresh on the finish. 17 points". The complex patchwork of vineyard parcels here (see our full notes on the estate) may have something to do with its success in 2020, with the varied terroirs helping to mitigate the low rainfall in July.
Landing in spring 2023.
