Château Saint-Pierre 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Olive, herbal, and graphite come together on this classic Bordeaux nose aging gentle hints of smoke and oak with air. A decidedly happy wine, smooth but tight, with nice mineral tinged tannins, plenty of ripe fruit, and classically proportioned with small tannins that are a little austere and steamy. There's a hint of cocoa and almost jammy red currant fruit on the long, light, fruit driven finish.Not a powerhouse but a great little wine. 92pts

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.
