Often forgotten about among the more celebrated St Julien properties, the 2019 St-Pierre is a charming wine, with plenty of elegance and a focussed and pure finish. The tannins are very supple, and it’s impressively long.
The 2019 Saint-Pierre, the sibling of Gloria owned by Domaines Martin rather than the Right Bank estate, is an address that has rapidly become one of the go-to Saint-Juliens in recent years. The bouquet is exquisite: pure blackberry, raspberry and briary scents infused with cedar and hints of mocha, very well defined a little more generous than Gloria. The palate is fresh and detailed with grippy tannins. Very good structure here, a sturdy yet paradoxically elegant wine with a lip-smacking salinity on the long finish. Superb, absolutely superb.
Walnuts and dark berries with chocolate undertones. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a tight finish. In reserve. Very structured.
