Like a few other estates in the Médoc, Château Prieuré-Lichine also makes a small amount of dry, white Bordeaux wine that is sold under the name of Le Blanc de Prieuré-Lichine. The wine made its debut in 1990. The wine is produced from a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The grapes come from a 1.5-hectare parcel of vines in the commune of Arsac. The white wine of Prieuré-Lichine is sold as a generic Bordeaux Blanc.

Notes and Reviews

Château tasting: Expressive and intense nose of wet pebbles, white stonefruits, fresh citrus peel and white flowers. Palate is fresh, lively acidity is well balanced by bright fruit notes. Quite textural and finishes very long.
