I was able to taste the 2017 Château Saint-Pierre on two separate occasions and this is an undeniably strong effort from this estate as well as for the vintage. A current rough blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc aging in 50% new oak, which accounts for 60% of the production, this inky purple beauty offers up loads of crème de cassis, black raspberry, tobacco leaf, and graphite. While this cuvée can be a touch rustic, it’s all elegance and purity in 2017 and has medium to full-bodied richness, perfectly integrated acidity and ripe, sweet tannin. It’s a beautiful, concentrated wine that’s going to need short-term cellaring and keep for two decades or more.

One of the real gems of the vintage, the 2017 Saint-Pierre is powerful, deep and quite concentrated. Despite its obvious richness, the 2017 has more than enough supporting structure to back it up. Gravel, smoke, tobacco, leather, licorice and spice lead into the potent finish in a muscular, tannic Saint-Julien built for the cellar. This is an outrageously beautiful wine. Tasted three times.

Focused, showing red and black currant preserve flavors driving along, with a racy graphite streak. Fresh acidity keeps it all moving through the anise-tinged finish. Should be delightful when released.

This is more layered and impressive than Gloria this year. Full and focused with structure and length.

92-93 points, James Suckling (Apr 2018)

The deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Saint-Pierre is a little reticent, giving glimpses at warm cassis, baked plums, tobacco and pencil shavings notes with a touch of forest floor. Medium-bodied with a muscular core of sustained black fruit, it has a grainy frame and plenty of freshness, finishing with impressive length. The blend is currently 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc.
