Performing much better from bottle than barrel, this is a super effort from Prieuré Lichine. This inky purple-colored wine displays beautiful floral-infused blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as cassis. It is medium to full-bodied, stunningly pure, gorgeously textured, and quite long and impressive. This is a top success in the vintage, capable of lasting 20 or more years. Robert Parker 91

The 2012 Prieuré-Lichine is soft, open-knit and totally inviting. Sweet floral notes meld into the typical Prieuré Lichine red stone fruits. Already quite expressive and totally delicious, the 2012 should offer readers a long and broad window of pure pleasure. The silky, persistent finish points to a bright future. The 2012 is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Stéphane Derenoncourt and Julien Lavenu are the consulting winemakers. -- Antonio Galloni 92
