Tasting Notes Saint-Pierre 2002
A very good effort for the vintage, this inky ruby/purple-colored 2002 boasts sweet, dusty black cherry fruit intermixed with hints of forest floor and barnyard. Medium to full-bodied, chewy, with high tannins and classic structure, this wine, like most St.-Pierres, will require discipline. Anticipated maturity:2010-2023.
Tasted at the Syndicat de Pomerol. The Chateau St.-Pierre '02 has good tension and vigour on the nose with crushed strawberry, mocha and a touch of white pepper. The palate has a dark berried fruit with good race, touches of leather and cedar prominent on simple finish that fades away quicker than you would like. Tasted December 2010.
