    Wine Advocate Notes
    93-95 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2020 Le Prieure is a blend of 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc, with 14.3% alcohol. It is aging for an anticipated 16 months in French oak barriques, 35% new. Deep purple-black colored, it needs a little swirling and coaxing to reveal fragrant notes of lilacs, underbrush and sandalwood over a core of Morello cherries and plum preserves, plus a waft of woodsmoke. The medium to full-bodied palate has beautiful energy and tension, featuring layers of juicy red and black fruits with a plush texture, finishing long and perfumed. What a stunner!" 05/21
    Neal Martin Notes
    94-96 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2020 Le Prieuré is very intense on the nose of pure blackberry, raspberry preserve and subtle blueberry scents, the oak extremely well integrated. The medium-bodied palate delivers velvety tannins and a mélange of red and black fruit laced with blood orange and hints of marmalade. This is a nimble, tensile Saint-Émilion with real puissance toward the finish and a persistent spicy aftertaste. Wonderful." 05/21
    Antonio Galloni
    95-97 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2020 Le Prieuré is fabulous. Inky and deep, with tremendous vibrancy, it dazzles from start to finish. Blueberry jam, graphite, menthol and lavender build as the 2020 gradually shows off its pedigree. Bright saline and mineral notes punctuate the mouthwatering finish. Technical Director Pénélope Godefroy has taken the farming and winemaking principles she learned at Latour and the other Artemis Group properties and applied them at Siaurac, Vray Croix de Gay, and the crown jewel Le Prieuré, all of which are now owned by French insurance company Suravenir. The results have been nothing short of remarkable. Le Prieuré is quite simply one of the most beautiful, striking wines being made in Saint-Émilion today." 06/21
    James Suckling Notes
    92-93 Points, James Suckling, "A medium-bodied red with blackberry, raspberry with and orange peel. It’s polished with fine tannins. Rather creamy texture." 05/21
    91-93 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, "A rich, ripe, opulent wine that shows more and more freshness and elegance with time in the glass, the 2020 Château Le Prieuré offers an outstanding array of black raspberry and mulled cherry fruits as well as background leafy herbs and chocolate. With high-quality tannins, good overall balance, and a great finish, it should easily be an outstanding wine and keep for 15+ years. It’s every bit as good as the 2016, 2017, and 2018." 05/21
