Bright medium red. Aromatic nose of plum, redcurrant, spice cake and coffee. Smooth and silky, with good texture and concentration. (ST)
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. (JS)
The estate was founded as the Prieuré de Cantenac around the year 1000, and for many years was a stopping point for pilgrims on the road to Santiago de Compostela. While vines were certainly planted from the 12th Century, the conversion of the property to a full-scale wine estate took place in the 1700s. Its current name refers to noted winemaker Alexis Lichine, who owned the estate from 1951 until his death in 1989. Ranked as a Fourth Growth in the official Bordeaux Classification of 1855, it's regarded as one of Margaux's most consistent producers and is known for its elegance and suppleness, derived in part from the relatively high proportion of Merlot in the blend.
