A similar style to Gloria, with a touch more solidity and even greater savoury elegance. There is lots of mass and volume, with fine tannins and pure length. The maitre du chai says he feels it is better than 2002 - and here 2001 was better than 2000, and 2002 better than either, so this is not faint praise. L&S (Mar 2005)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Beefy, masculine, vigorous, full-bodied wine, the 2003 Saint-Pierre is just beginning to hit full maturity. A lovely bouquet of cedarwood, forest floor, roasted herbs, black currants, new saddle leather and spice is followed by a long, well-made, beefy, rich, voluptuously textured wine with low acidity and ripe tannin. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. 2014-2022 Rating: 92 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com(Aug 2014)

A powerhouse effort from this small classified growth St.-Julien estate, the 2003's thick, unctuous-looking purple color is accompanied by an explosive perfume of cigar tobacco, melted licorice, incense, creme de cassis, and spice box. Opulent, full-bodied, and rich with firm tannin and higher glycerin and alcohol than usual, it should be cellared for 4-5 years and enjoyed over the following two decades.
