About

1855 Grand Cru Classe – 4th Growth

The history of wine production at Chateau Prieure Lichine started in the 12th century, when the monks of the Priory of Cantenac (prieure) made their well-regarded white wines.

Alexis Lichine, a wine merchant of Russian and American descent known as “Pope of Wine” acquired the chateau in 1951 and added his name to the chateau two years later. During 50 years of ownership by the Lichine family, the chateau added new plots, modernized its cellars and renovated the monks living quarters.

Today, the chateau is owned by the Ballande family, who permanently reside in New Caledonia.

The new vat room of the chateau is impressive.
