Château Saint-Pierre is the smallest and least well-known of the St-Julien crus. Ch. Saint-Pierre is a property with a long and complicated history. The estate was founded in the 17th Century, and classified a 4th Growth in the 1855 Classification of Bordeaux. Carved up over the years by family disputes, the Château was eventually bought in 1982 by Henri Martin, the son of a Bordeaux cooper. Henri already owned the Cru Bourgeois Ch. Gloria, but to own a Cru Classé was his lifetime ambition and he invested all his soul and a considerable amount of money into resurrecting this great property.
TASTING: "Firm in structure, the tannins create a large frame, filled with rich, dark fruit and cedary oak hints. Opulent with a long finish which ends with a savoury hit. Beginning to show very well with a little well time to air, with perhaps 15 years of pleasure still ahead." BBR.com
