Decanter, March 2017

More proof that St-Julien was making quality wines this year. This one majors on rich fruit extraction, layered over with a heavy dose of tannins that retract their claws just at the right moment. Expect big shoulders and...

This vintage always benefits in a vertical from coming after the 2013, but no question that this is a excellent wine with dark fleshy fruits and slate-textured tannins. Confident powerful, nuanced, rich, balanced. A...

Wine Enthusiast, April 2015

(WE91-93 points) Oak notes dominate this in wine, with spice, toast and vanilla tones hovering over fruit. There is a sense of over extraction that is luckily mitigated by lively acidity. It needs time to balance out.

Sweet, moderately oaky nose with much chocolate and a hint of something vegetal in the background from the cab. Generous ripe fruit and some lovely warm dry tannins behind it. Already very harmonious on the rather long...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2017

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.

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.

The 2014 Chateau Saint Pierre St Julien is a remarkable Bordeaux Blend that hails from the prestigious St Julien region in France. With a deep red color that catches the eye, this wine is a true gem for enthusiasts and collectors alike.

On the nose, the 2014 Chateau Saint Pierre offers a sweet and moderately oaky aroma, with notes of chocolate and a subtle hint of vegetal undertones from the Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a complex bouquet that entices the senses and promises a delightful tasting experience.

The palate of this wine is nothing short of exceptional. Generous ripe fruit flavors dominate the forefront, accompanied by warm, dry tannins that add depth and structure to the wine. The oak notes that were evident on the nose continue to make their presence known, with spice, toast, and vanilla tones creating a harmonious blend of flavors. Lively acidity cuts through the richness, balancing out the wine and adding a refreshing touch.

Critics have praised the 2014 Chateau Saint Pierre St Julien for its outstanding qualities. Wine Enthusiast awarded it an impressive score of 93 points, noting the dominance of oak notes but also acknowledging the wine's potential for further aging. James Suckling also gave it a score of 92, commending the wine's already harmonious nature and suggesting a couple of years of cellaring to allow it to reach its full potential.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate described this wine as a surprise of the Saint Julien appellation, surpassing its stablemate, the 2014 Chateau Gloria. The publication highlighted the wine's vibrant and energetic bouquet, medium-bodied palate, and impressive longevity. Decanter also praised the wine, awarding it an impressive score of 95 and noting its rich fruit extraction and long aging potential.

With a score of 94, Jane Anson further solidifies the excellence of this vintage. Anson describes it as a confident, powerful wine with dark fleshy fruits and slate-textured tannins. The wine is rich, balanced, and nuanced, offering a signature St Julien experience with every sip.

In conclusion, the 2014 Chateau Saint Pierre St Julien is a wine that embodies the essence of Bordeaux. Its complex aromas, exceptional palate, and rave reviews make it a must-have for any wine lover seeking a truly remarkable experience.
