Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, April 2013, Score: 90-92

Possibly the most flamboyant of the St Julien wines at the UGC tasting. This instantly jumps out of the glass with its lovely sweet juicy black cherry fruit aromas and flavours. A wine which highlights the very best of modern wine making techniques; lovely, moreish and an absolute pleasure to taste.

Producer

Château St-Pierre

Being the smallest château in St Julien of only 17 hectares St Pierre can often be overlooked. It is squeezed between the two largest châteaux of Lagrange and Talbot, properties which have vineyard holdings of 113 and 107 hectares respectively-the largest in all of the Médoc. However with just one taste, one can tell that they have some of the best terroir of the appellation. Dating back to the 17th century, St Pierre took its name from the 18th century from its then owner, Baron de St Pierre. After multiple metamorphoses, it ended up in 1982 in the hands of Henri Martin, the previous manager of Château Latour and the owner of Château Gloria. Martin was then 78 years old but full of vivacious energy and began transforming the estate. Today, it is run by his daughter Françoise and her husband Jean-Louis Triaud. They hold a total of 17 hectares comprised of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.

Region

St Julien, Red Bordeaux

St Julien is like the middle child of the Médoc - not as assertive as Pauillac or as coquettish as Margaux. It lies firmly between the two more outspoken communes and as a result produces a blend of them both. St Julien's wines have often been sought out by aficionados for their balance and consistency, particularly in the UK. Yet due to its middle child nature, it can occasionally be overlooked globally and as a result underrated by those markets outside the UK. Despite the fact that it has no first growths, it has several second growths including Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Barton, Léoville Poyferré and Ducru Beaucaillou as well as the celebrated châteaux such as Talbot and Beychevelle.
