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 2020 Chateau Saint Pierre St Julien is a Bordeaux Blend that hails from the prestigious St Julien region of Bordeaux, France. With its deep red color and a cork closure, this wine exudes elegance and sophistication from the moment it is poured into the glass. The label showcases the iconic Chateau Saint Pierre, a testament to the rich history and tradition of winemaking that is captured in each bottle.

Upon first whiff, the aromas of blackberries, plum skins, cloves, cardamom, dark chocolate, cedar, and graphite dance gracefully in the air, setting the stage for a truly enchanting experience. It is a wine that demands attention and appreciation for its complexity and depth.

On the palate, this full-bodied wine reveals its opulence and broad-shouldered structure. Ripe black fruit takes center stage, enveloped by layers of plush and velvety tannins that linger on the palate for an extended period of time. The refinement and precision of this wine truly shine through, showcasing the artistry and skill of the winemaker.

Renowned wine critics have praised the 2020 Chateau Saint Pierre St Julien, with James Suckling awarding it an impressive score of 96. He describes it as structured and refined, with a deep core of ripe black fruit. Jeb Dunnuck echoes this sentiment, noting that this wine demonstrates elegance, purity, and precision, while offering incredible value for its quality.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate also commends this wine, highlighting its richness, drama, and generous fruit-driven profile. It is a wine that defies expectations, with a comparatively moderate alcohol content that belies its intensity and power.

Decanter and Wine Spectator both reward this wine with scores of 94, praising its impressive structure, concentration, and balance. Vinous and Jane Anson also join in the chorus of acclaim, celebrating the scents of blackberry jam, dried herbs, graphite, and espresso that dominate the nose, as well as the fierce power of the tannins and the vibrant fruit on the palate.

With its incredible aging potential, the 2020 Chateau Saint Pierre St Julien is a wine that will continue to evolve and delight for years to come. Whether enjoyed now or cellared for future enjoyment, this wine is a testament to the artistry and excellence of Bordeaux winemaking.
