Chateau Prieure-Lichine 2004 & 2005

92 and 90 points

Margaux, Bordeaux. 13% and 13.5%

Surprisingly the 2004 was the better wine on the night. Finer more floral aromas. The oak is a little more noticeable on the 2004. The 2005 is bigger, as expected, dense with lots of very ripe tannins – but lower acidity so it is more approachable. It’s a very nice wine but the 2004 is a class act.
