Chateau Prieure-Lichine 2003 wine review by (PB)
This Grand Cru Bordeaux (Margaux) was the wine I supplied in (NW's) and my Christmas dinner surprise pairing with a nice rib roast. (See previous entry)
It is a lighter garnet color with nice fruity bouquet of berries and cedar with cherry predominating.
On opening, it is a tad watery but nice flavors of cherry and decent structure but needs to breathe.
After 4 hours of airtime, cherries and leather with a touch of wood but finishes a mite quickly. It is at its prime but will hold for another couple years I would guess.
I paid $40 for this on a trip to the mid-west a couple years ago. It is a solid wine but nothing special and for $40, you can find something special. Never-the-less, raise a glass!
