Decanter: 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. 92 Points

Tasting Notes
Wine Spectator: A dark, strapping style, offering lots of tarry-edged grip around the blackberry and plum compote notes, with a pretty espresso hint through the finish. Lush overall, as the vintage's velvety tannins are here in spades. 90-93 Points
Vineyard Notes
Saint-Pierre has only 17 hectares of vineyards and the wine is typically a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. It is aged in oak barrels (50% new) for 18 months.
Other Notes
With 17 hectares of vineyards, the Château Saint-Pierre is the smallest surface of the crus of the appellation, but ideally situated on a beautiful terroir severe in the heart of the village of Saint-Julien. The wine origins of this fourth Cru Classé back to the late 17th century. Bought by Henri Martin in 1982, already owner of Château Gloria , the estate is now run by his daughter and his son-Françoise and Jean-Louis Triaud. Its very old vines - 50 years on average - are biased in Cabernet Sauvignon (75%), the remainder planted with merlot and cabernet franc. St. Peter Castle is advised by the oenologist Eric Boissenot.
