Chateau Prieure-Lichine Margaux Bordeaux 2015

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Petit Verdot from AOC Margaux.

Neil Martin - The Wine Advocate - (88-90 points) - "The 2015 Prieuré-Lichine has a tightly wound bouquet, crisp and a little leaner than some of its Margaux compadres. It just feels contained at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with gruff tannin on the entry. There is respectable depth here, but it feels linear and rather predictable towards the blackberry and cedar finish. I would like to see more complexity and personality come through by the time of bottling. It feels a bit bolshie at the moment."

Jancis Robinson - 16.5/20 - "Purplish crimson. Intense savoury perfume. Not that much sweetness on the palate; some inkines on the end. Dry finish. Far from the most charming but a decent effort. Chewy and solid."

Wendouree Malbec 2017

What a vintage from Wendouree! This exudes blue fruits, earthy nuance, coffee grinds, lavender, graphite, mulberry and cassis. It’s beautifully sinewy and muscular but elegant and chewy at the same time. It’s way too young but really shows just how good Malbec is when made properly with a dab hand. Excellent.

  1. Wendouree Malbec 2017 ; The Wine Front – Gary Walsh 90+ points, Malbec, I feel, is kind of the barometer wine of the Wendouree range in that it most accurately reflects the conditions of vintage. The canary in the coal mine, as it were. The Malbec (and Cab Malbec) usually my favourite.This vintage is acid over tannin, in terms of structure and while it smells good, the finish has a distinct under-ripe blackberry tartness through it. Black plum, blackberry, hedgerow, some chocolate and very slight smokiness. A good, but light and intense small berry and blackberry flavour, sheets of glassy acidity, some hardness to tannin, and that finish that’s just too hardcore for the wine as at now. It will be interesting to observe this wine’s progress over the years. Tasted: Jul 2019; Alcohol: 13%; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2022-2030+
  2. Chateau Prieure-Lichine Margaux 2015 – Jancis Robinson – 16.5/20 – “Purplish crimson. Intense savoury perfume. Not that much sweetness on the palate; some inkiness on the end. Dry finish. Far from the most charming but a decent effort. Chewy and solid.”
  3. Cullen Diana Madeline Cabernet Blend 2016 – 96 Points – The Wine Front – Here’s a sleek wine of exquisite perfume and balance that treads lightly, but surely through the palate. Dances, even. There’s a quiet storm of graphite tannin, red and black fruits, a distinct pencil and mineral thing going on, clean fresh acidity, and a wonderfully long finish. It’s painting with water colours, to borrow a phrase, but gee it makes a beautiful picture. It’s rare to find a Cabernet with this level of poise and control. Yet again, Cullen is leading the pack.
