2015 has been lauded by critics the world over as Bordeaux next great vintage, and after one sip of the Prieure Lichine we agree!

Made in the same polished format as the estate’s namesake wine, the Confidences combines younger vines of the estate’s sandy, gravelly soils in a wine with a bright, jubilant character. Fourteen months of aging in used oak adds a touch of class and spice to this ruby juice, without imparting the heavy tannins that take years to mellow out. A younger version of its austere, big brother, Confidences puts the soul of Margaux in a bottle that’s ready to drink today, at a price you won’t regret tomorrow.

About the wine

Prieure Lichine’s Confidences has over 2,000 Vivino ratings and the following among Francophiles to sell out on its name alone, but the 2015 has even more going for it. Since 1972, this second wine has been 1st-class caliber, and consistently beats its peers, delivering legendary quality at a shockingly affordable price.

From a fantastic vintage across Bordeaux, Prieur Lichine’s 85 hectares in Margaux have a unique mix of gravel and sand ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. The 2015 Confidences de Prieur Lichine masterfully blends the former in a deep ruby wine that bursts with the essence of Bordeaux--black fruit, a velvety-smooth texture, and tannins to age--with the benefit of a warm, and beautiful growing season.

Compared to its neighbors, this pricing is an absolute joke--NEVER have we been able to secure such prestigious wine from a legendary estate at a sub $50 price tag. Don’t blink, or this beauty will be gone.

"A comparatively modern style of Bordeaux with bolder flavors than most." - Ellis L.

"Brilliant wine! Kept on giving and was beautiful at every stage." - Fed

96 pts, Alex Casella, WSET Advanced

"A brilliant purple ruby meets a nose of black raspberry, dark cherry, balsamic, wood spice, and fresh vanilla bean. Well groomed palate with sleek yet abundant fruit profile of blackberry jam, dark cherry and herbal undertones.  Moderate tannin with fantastic length on the finish. What a surprise in the end, as this wine delivers on many fronts and represents the vintage. Drink now and through 2025 and buy by the case. No doubt."

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
