Alexis Lichine was a Russian-born wine writer, salesman, and producer who played an important part in the expansion of the wine market in the United States. In the 1930s, he was hired by Frank Schoonmaker and together, they promoted the selling of Californian wines by varietal. After World War 2, Alexis Lichine left Frank Schoonmaker’s company and begin to both import and export wine. It was in 1951 that he both published his first book Wines of France and purchased Chateau Le Prieuré in the commune of Cantenac in Bordeaux.
The 2014 Château Prieure Lichine is little gem well worth seeking out. Offering lots of classic black cherry fruit, tobacco, herbs, and damp earth, it’s medium to full-bodied, impeccably balanced, and has moderate, chalky tannins on the finish. Like most 2014s, it’s already drinking nicely, yet is going to keep for 15 years or so.
