The signature style of a Saint-Julien red wine

The estate

One of the Henri Martin estates, Chateau Saint-Pierre is a 4th Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Julien. Under the leadership of the dynamic Henri Martin, the Chateau Saint-Pierre vineyard is being restored to its original 1855 glory. This property is now one of the most famous Grands Crus Classes of this iconic appellation.

The vineyard

Located in the Saint-Julien AOC, on the left bank of Bordeaux, Chateau Saint-Pierre covers 17 hectares of vines. Enjoying the ISO 140001 and HVE (High Environmental Value) 3 certifications, the Henri Martin estates, including Chateau Saint-Pierre, are cultivated with sustainable methods, using organic and bio-control products.

The vintage

2020 began with a mild winter, which incited an early bud break. Spring was marked by significant rainfall, as was the month of May, where the mildness allowed for an equally early flowering. The summer conditions, which were hot and dry, generated significant water stress, which slowed down ripening and delayed the start of the harvests. Despite the random yields depending on the plot, rigorous vineyard management, combined with plot-based vinification, made 2020 a vintage of exceptional quality.

Winemaking and aging

Vatting lasts for 18 to 23 days. Aging occurs in barrels, 50% of which are new wood.

Blend

The 2020 Chateau Saint-Pierre is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (79%), Merlot (15%) and Cabernet Franc (6%).
