Tasting Notes and Scores

90-92

Wine Advocate

The 2021 Prieuré-Lichine shows promise, exhibiting aromas of sweet berries, petals, loamy soil and cigar wrapper. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and seamless, with ripe tannins and a fleshy core of fruit, it's a fine-boned, nicely balanced wine that concludes with a persistent finish.
William Kelley, April 2022

89-91

Neal Martin

The 2021 Prieuré-Lichine has an understated bouquet of slightly earthy red fruit, tobacco and sage. The taut, fresh palate is medium-bodied with a slightly angular entry and fine acidity. Not a powerful or complex Margaux, but it respects the limitations of the growing season, so there is freshness and brightness.
Neal Martin, Vinous, May 2022

92-93

James Suckling

A fresh and vivid PL with currant and floral character and fine tannins. Medium body. Hints of lemon rind. Bright finish. Builds at the end.

Jancis Robinson

Purplish crimson. Solid, substantial, young red bordeaux that doesn’t taste as though it came from an underripe vintage. Mouth-filling with quite enough fruit and decided freshness. Plus quite a bit of ripe tannin on the end. More concentrated than most Margaux. Very solid performance even if a little chunkier than archetypal Margaux.

Antonio Galloni

The 2021 Le Prieuré is a pretty wine, but in this vintage it comes across as a bit lithe and lacking in depth. Sweet floral and spice accents lead into a core of bright, delineated fruit. Le Prieuré has been top-notch in recent years, but the 2021 is a bit underwhelming. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2022

Jane Anson

Attractive bright ruby in colour with violet reflections, and good purity and depth to the fruit, with concentrated damson jelly and blueberry, with an earthier cassis bud twist on the finish. The fresh acidities stop this being an exuberant and Prieuré can be in the most solar vintages, but this is charming with punch, and delivers on appellation signature. Tasted twice, 36hl/h yield. Candidate for an upscore.
