Founded in the 17th Century, this 4th Grand Cru Classé was broken up and scattered as a result of several inheritances. In 1982, through a combination of luck and persistence, Henri Martin managed to re-form the estate as it was known in 1855, the year of the famous classification. Since then, thanks to the owners’ commitment, Saint-Pierre has become universally known as a perfect representative of the Saint-Julien Grands Crus Classés.
Medium-dark ruby-purple. Autumnal aromas of aromatic cedar, underbrush and smoke complement blackcurrant and floral notes on the nose. Then bright and fresh on the palate, with delicate black cherry and graphite flavors carrying through on the long, minerally finish. Another excellent wine from this property, which has been on a roll of late. [89+ Points, Ian D’Agata– May 2013,vinous.com]
