Bordeaux 2009 Release: St-Pierre

A busy day here in the office, with the release of some very interesting wines. Not least among them,  St-Pierre.

Something of a hidden gem, we cannot sing St-Pierre’s praises highly enough. Recent vintages have been excellent, but it has truly come into its own in 2009. Robert Parker agrees, stating that this is the finest St-Pierre ever made and giving it 94-98 points, describing it as “unbelievably powerful, rich and impressive”.

 2009 Château St-Pierre, Cru Classé St-Julien
£537 per case of 12 bottles in bond
Ripe, scented, attractive and appealing, with a gently creamy, but mainly perfumed nose of red and black berry aromatics. Seamless texture and balanced weight. The fruit here is wonderfully pure, tannins are finely tuned and the wine is sustained by long, mineral freshness.
Drinking: 2015-2025
Robert Parker: 94-98* points (Wine Advocate 188)
