Bordeaux Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot

Also part of the Henri Martin estate - this a top quality Saint Julien (4th Growth) -  from 17 hectares of vines. The 2022 blend is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot.

The 2022 Saint-Pierre has an intense bouquet with black cherries, iodine and touches of blood orange. Delineated and focused. The palate is where the action is with gorgeous svelte tannins, perfectly judged acidity, harmonious, plush but not overbearing. Velvety toward the finish, yet there is real tenderness here. It actually is reminiscent of Las-Cases at the moment. 94-96 Neal Martin, Vinous.

A particular success for this estate, the 2022 Saint-Pierre offers up aromas of cassis, licorice and violets, followed by a medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy palate that's lively and sapid, with powdery structuring tannins and a penetrating finish. Its tannic weight tempers the wine's sweetness of fruit to deliver a classy, nicely balanced result. 93-94+ William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

Beautifully intense, grippy tannins, slate and pummice stone, crushed rocks, inky, cassis, bilberry, great quality and very much estate signature, this is seriously impressive, with fig, baked plum, bitter chocolate, fresh pomegrante and mandarin peel acidities. 94 Jane Anson.

Drinking Window: 2029 - 2065
