In 1972, the pope of wine, Alexis Lichine, first made the estate's second wine under its original label of Chateau de Clairefont, or as it is also called now, Confidences de Prieure-Lichine. This Margaux benefits from the same methods of harvesting, vinification, and follow-up as the Classified Growth. It is made with the grapes of younger vines and is aged in second and third-fill barrels for 14 months

"The red fruit is very appealing here with a wealth of raspberries and mulberries, as well as redcurrant notes. The palate has attractively juicy and succulent red berries and a chalky, piercing finish. Second wine of Château Prieuré-Lichine. Try from 2023."

On the softer side, with gentle plum and cherry compote flavors lined with light sandalwood, herb and black tea notes that linger prettily. Drink now through 2027. 13,000 cases made.
