An iconic property of the Margaux appellation on the Left Bank of Bordeaux, Château Prieure-Lichine boasts a prestigious winemaking heritage.
Ranked 4th Classified Growth in 1855, Château du Prieure de Cantenac became Château Prieure-Lichine following its takeover by the charismatic Alexis Lichine in 1951. This man, nicknamed the "Pope of wine," made Prieure-Lichine one of the most important references of the Margaux appellation. His son Sacha took over the reins of the estate and held them until 1999 when Prieure-Lichine was sold to the Ballande group.
Today, Château Prieure-Lichine has entered a new era in its history. The estate is outfitted with brand new infrastructure and cutting-edge technology in the new winery. Out in the vineyards, the team practices sustainable viticulture, while the winemaking is led by Stephane Derenoncourt. Guided by a never-ending quest for excellence, Château Prieure-Lichine holds true to one main philosophy: to reveal the diversity of the great terroirs of the estate in wines that are elegant, refined and representative of Margaux. The wines of Château Prieure-Lichine have recently been lauded as some of the best of their appellation, displaying fantastic density and depth. These wines are guaranteed to please even the choosiest fans of Margaux.
