Tasting Notes Saint-Pierre 2005

93

Smart consumers should be checking out this estate whose wines have been superb over recent vintages. Under the same ownership as Gloria, it is a classic St.-Julien with sensational concentration and intensity, but more powerful, thick, and muscular than wines such as Ducru Beaucaillou or Beychevelle. The 2005 possesses the vintage's structured, tannic mouthfeel as well as enormous concentration and massive extract. It exhibits plenty of earthy creme de cassis intermixed with notes of forest floor, licorice, and roasted meats. Backward with huge tannin, full body, and the potential for 3-4 decades of aging, this superb St.-Julien will get even better over the next 10-15 years. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040.

Tasted single blind at Southwold. The nose on this St. Pierre is incongruous compared to other Saint Julien wines with hints of burnt honey scents, plum and stewed apricots. Moderate definition. Ripe saturated palate, full-bodied, very toasty and upfront. Reminds me of Leoville Poyferre? Lush and ravishing but lacking a little restraint. Hedonistic and fun. Drink 2010-2020. Tasted January 2009.
