Scores and tasting notes


The final blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot has resulted in a wine of great power, stature, gravitas and density. The wine has a black purple color and a brilliant nose of scorched earth, creme de cassis, espresso roast, blackberries, truffles and licorice. Full-bodied, extremely powerful, yet with abundant sweet tannin, this stunning effort should prove sensational if given 7-10 years of cellaring. It should also last for 30-40 years. This is another brilliant wine from Jean-Louis Triaud, who is also responsible for the brilliant resurrection of the cru bourgeois, Gloria. This is one of the smallest estates in St.-Julien, with only about 6,000 cases produced, and even less were produced in 2010 than in 2009.

Tasted at the Union de Grand Cru in London. Although the Saint Pierre does not have the same delineation as the Gloria, it offers lovely ripe blackberry and tarry notes that speak of Saint Julien. The palate is medium-bodied with a succulent entry, crisp acidity and a svelte, caressing finish that is very harmonious and long. Very commendable. Tasted November 2012.
