Le Cloître du Château Prieuré-Lichine Margaux 1982

Winemaker's Notes:

In 1972, Alexis Lichine first made the estate’s second wine under its original label of Château de Clairefont, or as it is also called now, Le Cloître du Château Prieuré-Lichine. This Margaux benefits from the same methods of harvesting, vinification and follow-up as the Classified Growth.

Tasted in late 2007. It has an orange-brick color, quite light at the edges. The age is immediately apparent on the nose. This wine is over the hill to be sure, but far from dead. After a few minutes in the glass, the tannins became more noticeable, and aromas of dark, dried fruits emerged from underneath the initial funk. Elegant and delectable. If you come across a bottle of this, snatch it up before someone else does.

Rich and delicious. Dark ruby-garnet color, with an amber rim. Loads of crushed berry character, with hints of new wood. Full-bodied and very chewy, with masses of fruit and a long, long finish. Drink now or hold.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal. -... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1982 Prieure-Lichine 750ml
