Château Saint-Pierre Château Saint-Pierre Bordeaux Saint-Julien Rode Wijn Zwart Fruit En Rijk 1 Fles Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

This estate has had a long history and several owners since it was first planted with vines in 1693 when it was owned by the De Cheveney family. It was named after a Baron Saint Pierre who bought it in 1767.In the 1855 clasification it was a Fourth Growth. It was bought by the late Henri Martin in 1982 although he had previously bought some of the vineyards to make up his Chateau Gloria estate.He invested a great deal in the vineyards and in the Chateau building where the present owners Francoise and Jean-Louis Triaud,his daughter and son-in-law now live.At only 17 hectares it is one of the smaller classed growth estates and unusual both in that vinification of the grapes takes place not on site but at the neighbouring Chateau Gloria and that there is no second wine as any grapes or wine deemed not up to standard are sold off to a negociant.
