Unquestionably, the end of season weather helped make 2015 a stand-out vintage in its time with good balances, fabulous aromatic precision and rarely achieved density on the palate.

Some Very Ripe Dark-Plum Aromas With A Wealth Of Sweet Spices And Earthy Notes. The Palate Has An Impressively Rich, Suave And Smooth Core Of Black Fruit With A Powerful Palate That Delivers Concentrated And Intense Structure. This Is Superb Margaux. Try From 2022.

One Of The Best Vintages I Have Tried From Prieure Lichine - This Was Excellent During En Primeur And Even More So Now It's In Bottle. Restrained Elegance And Precision Are On Display, Balancing Out The Oozing, Rich Damson Fruit And The Well Placed Liquorice Edging. Well Balanced, The Fruit Is Cleanly Cut And Held, The Ripe Black Fruits Spliced In Two. Poised, With Good Ripeness, A Standout For Me. 50% New Oak Barrels, Stéphane Derenoncourt Consults.

The 2015 Prieuré-Lichine Has Really Come Together Over The Last Two Years. Sumptuous, Bold And Racy, With No Hard Edges Or Angular Contours, The 2015 Is All Class. The Purity Of The Flavors Is Striking. Bright Floral And Spice Notes Perk Up The Red Stone Fruit Nicely In This Sensual, Silky Margaux. All The Elements Simply Fall Into Place. This Is The First Vintage Stéphane Derenoncourt And His Team Made In The New Cellar. In 2015 Prieuré-Lichine, Is A Total Knock-Out. Don't Miss It.

This is a perfumed wine, rich in black currants and acidity as well as firm tannins. It is concentrated and dense while also elegant. The aftertaste boosts the ripe fruit and balanced acidity. Drink from 2025.

A fleshy, seductive, fruit-driven style, featuring layers of warm fig, boysenberry and blackberry compote gliding along. Lovely black tea and licorice notes gild the finish, with a flash of very fine-grained alder weaving in as well. Shows good latent depth here despite the forward style, so no rush at all. Best from 2022 through 2035.

The 2015 Château Prieure Lichine is slightly baked and rustic, and a solid step back from the 2014 (which is rarely the case). Chocolate, cooked cherries, licorice and earthy notes all emerge from the glass, and it offers medium-bodied textures and depth on the palate. It's good, but not one of the best out there and from an appellation that's at the top of the heap in 2015, this is a disappointment.
