4eme Cru Classé Margaux (Cantenac)

A fine cabernet nose and a rich deep colour is followed by a classic margaux suppleness combined with pervasive, silky tannins. Fine textured and with a long finish. This wine will develop well over several years. Drink 2018 to 2026.

The vineyard was first established by monks, the Priors of Cantenac, some 400 years ago. The property was taken over by Alexis Lichine in 1951and subsequently renamed from Prieuré-Catenac to Prieuré-Lichine. Alexis Lichine was renowned as the author of 'The Encyclopaedia of Wines and Spirits' which is still an important reference book today.

Today the property is owned by the Ballande group and the consultant oenologists are Michel Rolland and Stéphanie Derrenoncourt.
