Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Le Prieure is a little mute to start, offering glimpses at cedar chest and baked cherries notions with nuances of warm plums, pencil shavings and forest floor. Medium-bodied, the palate has great freshness with bags of bright red and black berries layers and rounded tannins, finishing earthy. Drinking Window : 2022 - 2037. 92+

Lushly textured, deep red fruits, licorice, cocoa, flowers and stone create the maquillage. The tannins are soft, polished and round, the garden-fresh fruit is quick to exhibit a sweetness. And in the finish, there is an interesting touch of salt in the tannins that compliments the ripe, red berries.

This has absolutely wonderful richness and freshness with a saline note - I tasted it twice and it impressed even more the second time. It's a real success in the vintage, although it carries the signature of an austere, savoury-fruited year. Undergoing biodynamic conversion over the full 6.24ha, divided into 19 plots on south-facing slopes of the plateau. Jean Claude Berrouet consults.Drinking Window 2022 - 2035

An impressive barrel sample, the 2017 Château Le Prieure is loaded with ripe cherry and raspberry fruits, has a rounded, supple, sexy texture, sweet tannin, and a great finish. It's a seductive, pleasure-bent beauty. Drink it over the coming 5-7 years.

Oak sits up a little on the nose, adding chocolate and slightly tarry notes to the redder fruit. The palate is smoothly arranged and quite fresh fruit builds nicely to an expansive, plum-stone finish. Drink or hold.

Fine tannins and ripe fruit are strong elements in this complex wine. With a solid, dense texture, juicy acidity and a dark core of tannins, it is a wine that will age, so hold until 2023.

The 2017 Le Prieuré was tasted on two occasions, the sample wildly different on this occasion. It offers glossy black cherries and cassis fruit on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy blackberry and bilberry fruit, a fine line of acidity and plenty of freshness on the structured, focused finish. I was not expecting this to show so well at this early stage, but this is very promising.

The 2017 Le Prieuré is a mid-weight, gracious Saint-Émilion built on understated elegance rather than power. Crushed flowers, spices, blue fruits and lavender are laced into the expressive, inviting finish. The 2017 is a touch slender relative to the most recent vintages, but it is quite pretty just the same. Tasted three times.
