Tasting Notes Saint-Pierre 1997

87-89

The underrated estate of St.-Pierre deserves more attention. While the wines do not quite hit the heights of Leoville-Las-Cases, Leoville-Barton, or Leoville-Poyferre, they are remarkably consistent, chunky, husky Bordeaux with considerable character. The 1997 reveals a nicely saturated ruby/purple color, and an earthy, spicy, fruit-driven bouquet (primarily jammy black currants) with subtle new oak in the background. Dense on the palate, and slightly backward, this fleshy, expansive but moderately tannic wine will be one of the few 1997s that will not be ready to drink upon release. However, it is approachable. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2013.

Tasted again in Bordeaux in July 2004. Black fruits, charred wood on the nose that lacks intensity. On the palate it is balanced, cedary and fresh, though lacking structure and complexity. Wild berries. A touch of white pepper adding some lift on the finish. I prefer Chateau Gloria but this is satisfactory for the vintage.
