The intensity and structure of a red Grand Vin from Saint-Julien

Despite a turbulent start to the year, 2018 will be remembered as a prodigious vintage indeed.

2018 also saw the inauguration of a new vertical wine press at Chateau Saint-Pierre, located in the Saint-Julien appellation, on the left bank of Bordeaux.

The beautiful climatic conditions of the summer allowed the fruit to reach a perfect maturity, and achieve a great aromatic concentration and level of anthocyanins. The harvest took place peacefully between September 20th and October 1st. The first wines showed exceptional quality, beautiful color and an intense aromatic expression.

A red grand Vin of Saint-Julien, the Chateau Saint-Pierre 2018 is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (77%) and Merlot (50%). Product of a great vintage for Bordeaux, the Chateau Saint-Pierre 2018 is showing signs of a perfectly accomplished Saint-Julien red wine.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Saint-Pierre displays shy scents of rose hip tea, dried mint, crushed rocks and lavender to begin, opening out to a growing core of warm blackcurrants, baked blackberries and Morello cherries plus wafts of garrigue and wild sage. Full-bodied and absolutely laden with black fruits and provocative mineral sparks, it has a firm texture of grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long and savory. Aging is anticipated to be for 14 months in 50% new and 50% second-fill barrels. The blend is currently 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Merlot.
