Château Le Prieure

2018 Château Le Prieure  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 93

Silky, refined and soft in texture, the wine focuses on its unadulterated fruit and elegant, medium-bodied character. The addition of spring flowers, crushed rock, licorice and smoke adds to the experience. 92-94 Pts

2017 Château Le Prieure  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92

Lushly textured, deep red fruits, licorice, cocoa, flowers and stone create the maquillage. The tannins are soft, polished and round, the garden-fresh fruit is quick to exhibit a sweetness. And in the finish, there is an interesting touch of salt in the tannins that compliments the ripe, red berries.

2016 Château Le Prieure  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 93

Silky, vibrant, fresh and showing a beautiful assemblage of flowers, cherries, rocks and licorice, the wine is sweet, pure and lively. For the time being, this is still a hidden gem, I suspect that will change with time.

Better than 2015, the sensuous textures and all the same fabulous attributes -- but better. Darker, riper, sweeter, fresher and juicier with more refined stone, a sort of crushed gemstone. This wine shows well this year!

2015 Château Le Prieure  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 93

Lush, sexy and supple, this offers sensuality, fresh, ripe, vibrant fruits and a finish loaded with black cherry, dark plums, licorice and mocha. This will only get better with age.

Another wine that is better in bottle than in barrel. The wine is lush, round, and sensuous in texture. The fruits are ripe, sweet and fresh, with a nice sense of purity in the dark plums, cherries, black licorice and dark cocoa that are present on the nose and palate. This should age quite nicely.

2014 Château Le Prieure  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 90

Medium-bodied with a touch of oak among the fresh plum notes, this wine is soft, forward and easy to drink. The new partnership with the owners of Chateau Latour certainly made a difference as this is one of the best vintages from this estate in years. 89-91 Pts

2005 Château Le Prieure  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 87

Fully mature, medium bodied, with more secondary notes than fruit, this is starting to fade and requires consumption.

2001 Château Le Prieure  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 86

Medium bodied, fully mature and on the fresh, bright, red berry side of the style range, with a red plum, raspberry, leaf and earthy red cherry character. I liked the earthy, spicy accents. But the wine is a bit too bright and the fruit is not going to hold from here.
