Wine Entry : Chateau Prieure Lichine 2000 (French)

-
This bottle was purchased from Ponti Wine cellar's sale at $88 instead of the usual price of $108.

Wanted to keep this bottle longer as it was from the celebrated Millennium vintage, but was discouraged to do so due to the lower than usual ullage of the liquid level. Thankfully the wine was still in a good state and I did enjoy the complex oak flavours in this classified growth. Though my family who tried it found it overly wooded.


Smell : Pleasant blackcurrent, rasberry and oak vanilla spice.

Taste: Bursting of flavour, cedar wood and oak. Smooth middle tannins.

After-taste : Nice firm warm lengthy finish. Worth keeping a few more years.

    Hi Desmond,

    Nice read. I remembered fondly the day when we saw the Prieuré-Lichine. Feel free to share your Tasting Notes online at www.winekakis.com as well.

    Cheers and enjoy every sip.
