The Comedown: Bordeaux 2011 Ten-Years-On (Apr 2022)

The 2011 Prieuré-Lichine does not quite have the complexity and clarity of its peers, touches of graphite and pencil box, though it does cohere with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannins, quite peppery in style, moderate weight though it lacks a bit of flair towards the finish. Tasted blind at the annual 10-Year-On tasting.
