This is a concentrated wine for the vintage, with spice and earth character. Full body, chewy tannins and a long finish. A little rustic now but will deliver so much pleasure. Better in 2016.

Typically, the quintessential feminine side of Margaux is represented by Prieure-Lichine-s 2011. Floral, raspberry, black cherry and currant notes intermixed with spice box are present in this deep ruby/purple-colored effort. The richness builds incrementally and becomes more impressive than it initially seems. A well-made, supple-textured, delicious 2011, it is an undeniable success for the vintage. Enjoy it over the next 15 years.
