Château Prieuré-Lichine wine
Located in the village of Cantenac, in the Gironde, Château Prieuré-Lichine is a Margaux Quatrième (fourth) Grand Cru (as ranked in 1855). The history of the château begins in the 16th century, when it belonged to the Church. In the 19th and 20th centuries it passed through various hands before being purchased in 1951 by Alexis Lichine, a world-famous wine critic. Lichine, who added his name to that of the château, considerably expanded the property and made significant technical improvements. Château Prieuré-Lichine was finally sold to the Ballande family, which already owned Château Barec in Pessac-Léognan. 

The vineyards of Château Prieuré-Lichine cover 70 hectares (173 acres) divided over the five villages of the Margaux appellation. They are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon (53%), Merlot (39%), Petit Verdot (6%), and Cabernet Franc (2%). The harvest is done entirely by hand. 

Château Prieuré-Lichine is crafted with the greatest care, listening attentively to the terroir and vines and deftly managing the diversity of the various parcels. Oenologist Stéphane Derenoncourt makes this excellent wine with the help and counsel of Michel Rolland. Since 1973 the château has also produced a second-label Margaux, Château de Clairefon.
