  • Goedhuis, April 2017, Score: 91-93

    With a distinctly graphite lift on the nose, this wine’s Cabernet Sauvignon is sophisticated and elegant. The dark fruit tones have excellent intensity, and the tannins add savoury complexity to the fresh balance of this wine. CP

  • Neal Martin, January 2019, Score: 94

    The 2016 Saint-Pierre has plenty of fruit intensity on the nose but maintains a sense of control and class. Blackberry, briar, cedar and light pencil shaving aromas develop in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, good depth and more substance and vigor than the Gloria. The saline, structured finish exerts impressive grip. A fantastic Saint-Julien. 2022 - 2048

  • Neal Martin, April 2017, Score: 94-96

    The 2016 Chateau Saint-Pierre is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc picked between 29 September and 3 October for the Merlot and 5-17 October for the Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is matured is 50% new oak. The Cabernet comes through strongly on the nose as you would expect: quite intense black fruit, graphite and just a touch of dried herbs. There is lovely definition and focus on display. The palate is well balanced with grainy tannin, a crisp line of acidity, classic in style in keeping with the style of the vintage with very fine mineralité and tension towards the sprightly finish. It is one of the most Pauillac-like Château Saint-Pierres that I have tasted, a very well crafted, almost understated but sophisticated wine that will age for 20 to 30 years. This is a fantastic Saint Julien that may well rest at the top of my banded score. Drink Date 2022 - 2050

  • Antonio Galloni, January 2019, Score: 94

    The 2016 Saint-Pierre (Saint-Julien) is a powerful, brooding Saint-Julien. Smoke, game, licorice, menthol and grilled herbs add to a feeling of gravitas and pure power. Huge on the palate, with tremendous depth and exceptional balance, Saint-Pierre is once again one of the Sleeper wines of the Left Bank. Don't miss it. Tasted two times. 2024 - 2046

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2017, Score: 91-94

    A potential sleeper for the vintage, the 2016 Saint-Pierre (Saint-Julien) is terrific. Graphite, smoke, spice, crème de cassis and grilled herbs all show a strong Cabernet Sauvignon imprint. That carries through to the wine's structure, where the tannins are firm and incisive yet nicely integrated. Vivid and nuanced, with terrific energy as well as class, the 2016 Saint-Pierre is a winner. Today, it is bold, racy and ripe; if it softens over time, it will be even better than this note suggests. Tasted three times.

  • James Suckling, April 2017, Score: 94-95

    Blueberry, blackberry and fresh currant-leaf character. Full-bodied, refined, beautiful, dense and tight. Great depth. Best ever.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2017, Score: 17.5++

    This is a lovely, welcoming Saint-Pierre and while the usual oak onslaught is here to shock the taster, the fruit is robust and noble enough to cope. This is a forceful wine and it is also rather dry on the finish, but knowing this estate as I do, it will even out like clockwork and turn into a nicely perfumed, long, slender wine in time. Perhaps not a great vintage for Saint-Pierre it is, however, a commendable effort.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2017, Score: 17-

    Dark purple. Sweet peppery notes on the nose. Very glossy and friendly. Sweet start and then quite chewy. Well put together if a tad inky on the end. Not quite enough density on the finish for perfection. Drink 2025-2038

  • Tim Atkin, May 2017, Score: 93

    Just a notch below its stable mate, Château Gloria, in 2016, but this is still a very serious St Julien from the Henri Martin portfolio. Concentrated, firm and vigorous, with leafy aromas, layered dark berry and tobacco flavours and plenty of supporting tannin. 2026-36

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.

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.Read less

Region

St Julien

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.
