This 2011 boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as copious notes of creme de cassis incense lead pencil shavings and perhaps a hint of truffles. Medium to full-bodied with surprising density impressive purity decent acidity and serious length this St.-Julien should easily last for two decades or more. While the 2011 Saint-Pierre will not make anyone forget the 2009 or 2010 it is an outstanding effort. Yields were somewhat higher than at other estates (42 hectoliters per hectare) and the final blend includes a whopping 81% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc that came in at 13% natural alcohol. Proprietor Jean-Louis Triaud has been on a qualitative tear with this estate as well as with his much larger property Gloria.

This has a nice briary frame with a core of blackberry coulis plum eau-de-vie and sweet tobacco. Solid juicy finish.-J.M.

Aged in 40-60% new oak. Located on 17 hectares just outside the town of Beychevelle near the boundary of the St. Julien appellation and surrounded by Beychevelle Branaire-Ducru and Gruaud-Larose. Dark and complex on the nose aromas of blackberry and cassis mix with notes of wild mushrooms damp earth cigar box and cola. Beautifully textured on the palate the tannins are fine and already well-integrated providing structure and length to the wine. The acidity remains in balance and compliments rather than overpowers the fruit yielding an overall impression of elegance and complexity. Give this wine 5-7 years in the bottle and drink through 2030. One of the top wines of the appellation.
