Tasting Notes Saint-Pierre 2004
This somewhat under-the-radar classified growth has produced a dense ruby/purple-colored 2004 with superb density of black currant and cherry fruit intermixed with subtle herbs, licorice, and forest floor characteristics. Medium to full-bodied, rich, and muscular, it is an atypically powerful 2004 that should be at its finest between 2012-2025. It is a sleeper of the vintage.
Tasted at the Syndicat de Pomerol. The 2004 has a fleshy, 'wine gum' scented nose with fresh strawberry and a touch of toffee. The palate is simple but balanced with fleshy Merlot fruit; soft and supple with a delicate touch of coca towards the finish. Tasted December 2010.
