This is one of the most improved estates (4th Growth 1855) in all of Bordeaux. Now making a Saint Julien of top quality from 17 hectares of vines.
2023 is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot. 

A strong effort, the 2023 Saint-Pierre unwinds in the glass with aromas of cassis, dark berries and incense, framed by a deft touch of new oak. Medium to full-bodied, rich and layered, with good mid-palate density, powdery tannins and lively acids, it's a classically proportioned Saint-Julien that will age with grace.
92-94 William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

This has a super-refined and silky tannin structure. Tastes pure and pristine, with notes of blackberries, violets and a touch of chocolate. Medium-bodied with a firm finish.
93-94 James Suckling.

Enjoyable, well balanced, great inky depths of flavour, an enjoyable, sleek and confident St Julien, with an effortless finesse where you feel they aren't trying too hard to impress, just harnessing the drinkability of the vintage with its black fruit and liquorice character. Give it a few years, then sink into the pleasure of this wine.
95 Jane Anson.

The 2023 Saint-Pierre (Saint-Julien) is packed with blackberry jam, gravel, lavender, dried herbs, spice and crushed rocks. There's a ton of character here. Incisive tannins and bright acids pull it all together in style. Give this at least a few years to soften.  Drink 2030-2045.
93-95 Antonio Galloni, Vinous.
