    Tasting Note :

    As I predicted from barrel, this stunning effort is a wine to buy by the case. Its opaque ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of graphite, barbecue smoke, blackberries and black currants. The full-bodied, textured 2008 Saint-Pierre reveals a skyscraper-like mouthfeel along with tremendous viscosity and unctuosity. One of the richest and potentially longest-lived 2008s, it is a fabulous sleeper of the vintage.

    Details :

    Today the property sits at the top of the 4ème Cru Classé , and is quietly becoming that rare thing in Bordeaux, a truly undervalued wine. The lovely Château is found in the heart of St. Julien, in the village of Beychevelle. Bordered by Gruaud Larose to the west and Ducru-Beaucaillou to the east, the vineyards are wonderfully located on deep gravel soils – the ideal terroir for the Cabernet grape. Stylistically as well as geographically, the wines of St. Julien fall between those of Pauillac and Margaux. Saint-Pierre itself often displays a wonderfully fragrant, Margaux-like nose, allied to a dense, cassis laden palate more akin to Pauillac.
