2020 Château Saint-Pierre  (St. Julien) 94
Seductive, with loads of ripe, dark, fresh, polished, earthy, black currants, cedar, toasty oak, licorice and spice. The wine is soft, polished, fresh and focused, leaving you with layers of deep ripe fruits, a touch of coffee bean, cocoa and currants. This should age and evolve for 25 years or more. 93-95 Pts

Deep in color, the wine kicks off with flowers, smoky currants, spice, espresso and cigar box notes.

Balanced, elegant and fresh, give this some time to fully come together and allow the oak to fully integrate. The wine was produced from 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc.

Dark in color, the wine is full, rich, deep, fleshy and round. The tannins are ripe and so is the fruit, which you can taste and feel to a much better degree, now that the oak program has been improved here. The wine ends with a long, black cherry, espresso, licorice and earthy component that hangs with you..

2015 Château Saint-Pierre  (St. Julien) 94
Full bodied, concentrated, round and refined, the wine kicks off with a nose packed with espresso, licorice, cassis, blackberry and floral notes. The fruit is fruit, sweet and ripe. The finish is all about its sweet, ripe, polished, core of fruit with its smoke and espresso undertones. I really like the energy, refinement and almost lush textures on the palate found here.

2015 Saint-Pierre - Cassis, dark chocolate, licorice and floral notes create the perfume. Not as ripe as you’ll find in other more exalted, previous, recent vintages, this closer to being elegant in style with freshness and a spicy, cherry and cassis finish. Produced from a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the wine reached 13.7% alcohol with a pH of 3.72 and is now aging in 50% new, French oak barrels. The harvest took place from September 21 to October 7. 92 - 94 Pts

This wine makes a memorable first impression. Like a seductress whose essence haunts the room long after she has made her exit, this wine offers a heady and unforgettable bouquet of blackberry, dark cherry, espresso bean, earth and cocoa.

The nose, with its espresso, smoke, blackberry, cedar and cigar box has a lot to offer. The palate, with more than ample blackberry, currant, cocoa and oak is round, plush, and fruity. This is a nice wine but it’s probably going to continue showing a touch of oak in its profile.

2009 St. Pierre continues on its path of improvement since 2005. Because the property is not as well known as many St. Julien wines, the wine remains well priced for its quality. In fact, along with Branaire Ducru, it offers one of the better deals for fine wine from the Medoc in 2009. With deep ruby hues, the wine smells of dark berries, cassis, anise, cracked black pepper, and oak. Rich, fresh, and round, this full bodied wine finishes with lush cassis, boysenberry, spice, and chocolate flavors. 94-96 Pts.

This is the success story of St. Julien. The property was known for producing a strong wine in 1961. It took close to 45 years before they began making strong wines. Since 2005, they have been getting better every year. Chocolate, coca powder, cassis, earth, sweet black cherry and coffee bean aromas were coupled with a long, polished, cassis and blackberry filled finish that will drink well young and age for at least two decades.

A bit overripe, with some heat and dryness in the tannins, the wine was much better on the nose than on the medium bodied, almost light palate. This is not a wine for further aging. While it will not fall apart in the near future, it is not a wine to hold for further evolution.
