About Château St Pierre

Saint Pierre was one of the most obscure classified growths until very recently, but under the directorship of Henri Martin (owner of Gloria), this small estate his emerged as a somewhat unlikely threat to the established order. In fact, this wine now regularly pops up in conversation alongside the likes of Ducru Beaucaillou, Leoville Las Cases and Leoville Poyferre. The style is classic, but polished with inky colour and profound depth. In 2009 and 2010 this estate reached new levels of excellence, but this has become a property we expect to excel year in year out.

Appellation: St Julien

St-Julien may not have any first growths like its neighbour Pauillac but has a raft of high-performing Châteaux in its ranks, second through to fourth growths, Including Ducru-Beaucaillou, Léoville Las Cases, Léoville-Poyferré, Léoville-Barton.
Gruaud-Larose and Talbot. For many St-Julien is quintessential claret, robust, powerful but refined subtle and poised. Gravelly soils dominate, hence wide plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon with some Merlot.
