|Classification||4ème Cru Classé|
75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc. Very dark. Starts almost as easy as its stablemate Gloria, fat and filled-out, a full, rich, supple weight - there's a real richness to this although it remains supple, easy. They think this is a vintage which will drink well young as well as ageing well. Rating: 91-92 L&S (Apr 2016)

Like its stablemate, Château Gloria, St. Pierre has made a deliciously refined wine in 2015, combining succulent black fruits with filigree tannins and supporting acidity. The oak, even at this young age, feels like an integral part of the blend. Drinking range: 2024 - 2032 Rating: 94 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com(May 2016)
This is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Fresh and very sweet fruit on the nose, smoky and slightly sulphurous on a second sample, still showing fine black cherry fruit though, with some real perfume. The palate shows a really supple and convincing texture, some real breadth and conviction here, for the appellation at least, with lots of oaky spice and lactone sensations, with piles of ripe grip too, especially in the finish. A gentle but still attractive wine. Rating: 15.5-16.5/20 Chris Kissack, www.thewinedoctor.com(Apr 2016)
Big, crunchy cassis fruit from 75% Cabernet Sauvignon with a lift from 6% Cabernet Franc. Very good depth and tannins with complexity to come. New cellars have continued the progress of this undervalued estate. Drinking range: 2021 - 2035 Rating: 92 Steven Spurrier(Apr 2016)
Château Saint Pierre
St Julien Quatrième cru 1855 At 17ha Château Saint Pierre is the smallest classed growth estate in St Julien. The name is derived from the Baron de Saint-Pierre who owned the estate at the tail end of the 18th Century. He left Saint-Pierre to his two daughters who, after running the estate together for a while, divided Saint-Pierre in two in 1832. The Dutch company, Van den Bussche bought both bits of Saint-Pierre in 1923 and re-united the estate. In 1982, Henri Martin (the man who assembled the Château Gloria from bits of vineyard purchased from various St Julien estates, including Saint-Pierre) bought the estate and he, and his daughter and son-in law Françoise and Jean-Louis Triaudand, have done much to raise the profile of this oft over-looked château. The vineyards are planted to 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, with the wines being made at Château Gloria. Although renewed reputation has pushed the price up a little in recent years, Saint-Pierre still represents quite good value for some nicely made darkly coloured St Julien.
