Information About Chateau Saint Pierre

Chateau Saint Pierre finds its roots in an estate named Seracon, which first planted vineyards in 1693. Shortly afterwards, the whole estate was bought by a Baron de Saint Pierre who would name the estate in his fashion. On his death in 1832, Chateau Saint Pierre was divided between the Baron's two children. Despite difficulties in managing the estate after this date, it was was awarded Fourth Growth status in 1855. 

Recent history is built around Henri Martin, who bought Chateau Saint Pierre in 1982 and began rebuilding the estate and recovering its former vineyards. Today the estate produces an excellent wine which reflects its 1855 classification. 

The 17 hectare vineyard is planted to 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.

Lovely deep plum, touch of cafe cream, perfumed, quite tight, cool fruit, tight, salty fine-grained tannins on the impressive dusty finish. Long and oaky. Very good future.

Rating : 91-93/100

Blueberry, blackberry and fresh currant-leaf character. Full-bodied, refined, beautiful, dense and tight. Great depth. Best ever.

Rating : 94-95/100

Dark purple. Sweet peppery notes on the nose. Very glossy and friendly. Sweet start and then quite chewy. Well put together if a tad inky on the end. Not quite enough density on the finish for perfection.

Rating : 17/20

A potential sleeper for the vintage, the 2016 Saint-Pierre (Saint-Julien) is terrific. Graphite, smoke, spice, crème de cassis and grilled herbs all show a strong Cabernet Sauvignon imprint. That carries through to the wine's structure, where the tannins are firm and incisive yet nicely integrated. Vivid and nuanced, with terrific energy as well as class, the 2016 Saint-Pierre is a winner. Today, it is bold, racy and ripe, if it softens over time, it will be even better than this note suggests. Tasted three times.

The 2016 Chateau Saint-Pierre is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc picked between 29 September and 3 October for the Merlot and 5-17 October for the Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is matured is 50% new oak. The Cabernet comes through strongly on the nose as you would expect: quite intense black fruit, graphite and just a touch of dried herbs. There is lovely definition and focus on display. The palate is well balanced with grainy tannin, a crisp line of acidity, classic in style in keeping with the style of the vintage with very fine mineralité and tension towards the sprightly finish. It is one of the most Pauillac-like Château Saint-Pierres that I have tasted, a very well crafted, almost understated but sophisticated wine that will age for 20 to 30 years. This is a fantastic Saint Julien that may well rest at the top of my banded score.
