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.

Ripe and spicy with delicious open fruit this wine is rounded yet has a straight line of pure acidity. It has a light touch while showing depth of flavor for the future. - R.V.

The Saint Pierre is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. It has a wonderful bouquet that equals the 2009 and 2010 with superb delineation and focus surfeit with exuberant red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with mineral rich raspberry and strawberry fruit struck through with graphite and tobacco. Very poised on the finish this is a very impressive Saint Julien. Tasted April 2012.

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

Shows aromas and flavors of blueberries and minerals. Medium to full body with polished tannins and a minerally aftertaste. Reminds me of the 2004.

Label

The grapes for Saint-Pierre’s red wine are picked by hand and vinified in the traditional way in heat-regulated stainless steel vats. The wine then spends 14 to 16 months being aged in casks, half of which are replaced every year. The wine is typically a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc.

Winery

Saint Pierre, Chateau

The smallest of the Saint-Julien crus, Chateau Saint-Pierre was first established in the 17th century, although a number of legacies subsequently led to the property being split up and dispersed. In 1982, through a combination of good luck and tenacity, current proprietor Henri Martin, who owned neighboring Chateau Gloria, was able to put the estate back together the way it had been in 1855, the year of the famous classification.

Ever since, thanks to the investments made by the owners, Saint-Pierre has been acknowledged as a perfect representative of the Grands Crus Classes of the prestigious Saint-Julien appellation. The estate vineyards, located in the middle of the commune of Beychevelle. These, cover 17 hectares which are planted with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc, on soils of Gunzian gravel over clay and sand, and an average vine age of 50 years.
