A candidate for one of the finest St.-Juliens of the vintage St.-Pierre's 2006 is one of the smaller productions in this consistent appellation making it difficult to find in the marketplace. Its deep opaque purple color is accompanied by notes of roasted herbs charcoal graphite and extravagant creme de cassis and licorice. Full-bodied powerful deep and rich with outstanding balance purity texture and length this stunning 2006 will be very long-lived. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2030.

Sexy aromas and flavors of black- and redcurrant menthol licorice and nutty oak lifted by a violet topnote. Supple classically dry and quite concentrated with juicy acidity giving cut to the flavors and extending the finish. A sound tannic spine should ensure at least two decades of development in bottle for this very suave Saint-Julien. This has turned out very well.

This offers blackberry jam with licorice and floral undertones. Full-bodied and chewy with slightly austere tannins but also fleshy and well-structured. A textbook claret. Should age nicely. Best after 2014. -JS
