Peter Maude Fine Wines
2019, Château Saint Pierre, SAINT JULIEN, 4ème Grand Cru Classé
Bordeaux Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Such an expressive nose, high toned, floral, a bit wild with some medicinal aspects, coffee, leather and cola notes. The texture is just gorgeous, there's a chewiness that you find in a lot of the St-Julien's but it's soft, generous, round and mouth filling in a great way. Then a deep core of fruits come in with black liquorice, underpinned by excellent cooling acidity and menthol freshness. I like this a lot. Great florality and perfume surrounding the fruit on the palate too. This has a seductive appeal with rich fruit and rich spicing. 95/100 Georgina Hindle, Decanter.
