  • Neal Martin, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    The 2022 Saint-Pierre was picked 12-26 September at around 35hL/ha and matured in 48% new oak. It has an intense bouquet with black cherries, iodine and touches of blood orange. Delineated and focused. The palate is where the action is with gorgeous svelte tannins, perfectly judged acidity, harmonious, plush but not overbearing. Velvety toward the finish, yet there is real tenderness here. It actually is reminiscent of Las-Cases at the moment. Drink 2029-2065

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 93-94+

    A particular success for this estate, the 2022 Saint-Pierre offers up aromas of cassis, licorice and violets, followed by a medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy palate that's lively and sapid, with powdery structuring tannins and a penetrating finish. Its tannic weight tempers the wine's sweetness of fruit to deliver a classy, nicely balanced result.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Score: 93-95

    The 2022 Saint-Pierre (Saint-Julien) is superb. Dark, sumptuous and beautifully layered, Saint-Pierre is a wine of mystery. Inky dark fruit, lavender, licorice, plum, chocolate and gravel all build as the 2022 shows off its layered, somber personality. As always, Saint-Pierre packs a tremendous punch. It's all there in the 2022. Drink 2027-2047.

  • Goedhuis, April 2023, Score: 93-95

    An intense wine with Cabernet making up 80% of the finished blend, this is strong and firm. With layered black fruits, there is a Pauillac-esque gravitas, tense and taut: this is a St Julien with muscle. Plush on the finish, with fresh tobacco and cedar wood and a touch of vanilla pod sweetness on the finish.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 95-96

    This shows ripe black fruit with hints of vanilla and walnuts, yet it’s fresh and crunchy at the same time. Full body with fine-grained, silky tannins. Really polished and textured with a long finish. Vivid and pure blue fruit. Violets, too. Crunchy at the end. Fresh.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 95-97+

    A real "wow" wine in the making, the 2022 Château Saint-Pierre (Saint-Julien) checks in as 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot. This darker, powerful wine offers up loads of pure cassis and black cherry-like fruits as well as ample chocolate, graphite, and lead pencil nuances. Full-bodied, concentrated, and structured, it nevertheless stays pure, impeccably balanced, and shows a real sense of elegance. The alcohol here is 13.9% and the élevage is in 48% new French oak. Tasted twice with consistent notes.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 18+

    Château Saint-Pierre (4ème Cru Saint-Julien) 80 Cabernet Sauvignon, 12 Merlot, 6 Cabernet Franc, 2 Petit Verdot 50% new oak 14% alc I often find Saint-Pierre a little punchy and combative during En Primeur week, and yet in 2022, this wine, while fairly structured and rigid, is a model of civility. While the gates are closed, and the shutters are down, this is an elegant creation with firm foundations and plenty of impressive flourishes. Gone is the urgency of past vintages, with 2022 introducing a newfound degree of refinement and quiet power. Give it time because the dark fruit need tempering, but this will be a delectable wine when it reaches its apogee. 18+ Clos du Marquis (Saint-Julien - from the Léoville-Las Cases portfolio) 45.5 Merlot, 44.5 Cabernet Sauvignon, 10 Cabernet Franc 53% new oak 14.25% alc 3.7 pH 84 IPT 7% press wine (which was 100% Cabernet) 14 This magical Clos du Marquis features a fascinating blend of tenderness and steeliness. It feels like Cabernet Franc is the glorious glue fastening the equal parts of Cabernet and Merlot together. This is a naked, raw, challenging wine prepared for the long haul. The finish is as dramatic as I have seen on this wine, and given a decade, the fruit will billow and soften on cue.

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.
