The history of this estate goes back to the 16th century. Records from 1693 refer to a property known as "Serancan" belonging to the Marquis of Cheverry.* In 1767, during the reign of Louis XV, the vineyard came into the possession of the Baron de Saint-Pierre, who gave his name to the château. His two daughters inherited the estate in 1832. In 1855, Saint-Pierre was classified as the first of the fourth great growths. After Madame de Luetkens sold her share of the château to Léon Sevaistre in 1892, Saint-Pierre was sold under two different labels: "Saint-Pierre-Sevaistre" and "Saint-Pierre-Bontemps- Dubarry". In 1922, both parts of the vineyard were acquired by Belgian négociants, with the exception of the winery buildings, which were bought by Henri Martin from the baron's last heir in 1981. Henri Martin purchased the vineyard in 1982, thereby reuniting an estate that had been split up for many years.
We'd already heard good things on the grapevine about the 2009 Ch. Saint<br/>Pierre and we were delighted not to be disappointed at our tasting. The<br/>enticing nose of warm red and black fruit leads to a palate of juicy, ripe<br/>mulberries with a lovely kick of white pepper at the back, whilst its freshness<br/>that counterbalances the sweetness perfectly. With purity to the fore, melting<br/>tannins and a resounding, persistent finish, the sheer class of this wine<br/>suggests this could be a property to watch.
