"It was in 1972 that the owner of the time, 'the Pope of wine' Alexis Lichine, first made this second wine under the name Château de Clairefont, which is known today as Confidences de Prieuré-Lichine.

"This wine enjoys the same care as is given to the grand vin. It is produced from the younger parcels of this classified growth."

Le Figaro du Vin

Notes and Reviews

Antonio Galloni (91)

The 2015 Confidences de Prieuré-Lichine is a very pretty second wine. Pliant, supple and inviting, the Confidences is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. All of the signatures of the Grand Vin come through nicely, but, of course, in miniature. This is a strong showing.
