Château Saint-Pierre 2015

A rich and fruity red wine from Saint-Julien

The estate

Owned by Domaines Henri Martin, Château Saint-Pierre is a Saint-Julien 4th Grand Cru Classé, situated on the left bank of Bordeaux. Under the impetus of the dynamic Henri Martin, the vineyard of Château Saint-Pierre, as it was in 1855, was meticulously restructured. This estate is now one of the most famous references in this illustrious appellation.

The vineyard

Château Saint-Pierre 2015 is a Saint-Julien wine that stems from a 17-hectare vineyard.

The vintage

A wet and mild spring favoured an early and rapid bud break. While July was hot and dry, August was marked by a more unstable and humid climate. The alternation between rainy spells and hot, dry and windy weather in September helped to refine the ripening process and preserve the vineyard’s healthy condition until the harvest.

Vinification and ageing

Harvested in a parcel-by-parcel manner thanks to new infrastructures, the grapes are rigorously sorted before being vinified to avoid any over-extraction. The wine is aged exclusively in barrels (50% of which are new).

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (75%)

Merlot (19%)

Cabernet Franc (6%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Saint-Pierre is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc matured for 14 months in 50% new and 50% one-year-old barrels. Deep garnet-purple in color, it offers expressive blackberries, black currants and stewed black plums on the nose with suggestions of menthol, rare beef, black olives and tobacco. Medium-bodied and tautly structured with ripe, grainy tannins and a lively backbone with vibrant, muscular form, it finishes long and savory.
