Like a few other estates in the Médoc, Château Prieuré-Lichine also makes a small amount of dry, white Bordeaux wine that is sold under the name of Le Blanc de Prieuré-Lichine. The wine made its debut in 1990. The wine is produced from a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The grapes come from a 1.5-hectare parcel of vines in the commune of Arsac. The white wine of Prieuré-Lichine is sold as a generic Bordeaux Blanc.
