Located in the heart of the Pomerol appellation, close to the Church of St. John, Château Saint-Pierre is an unmissable reference in the appellation. Château Saint-Pierre is renowned for its great red Pomerol wines, made with the attention of Stéphane Derenoncourt and Frédéric Massie, both world-renowned consultant oenologists. Silky, full-bodied and structured, the wines of Château Saint-Pierre are without doubt Pomerols for long ageing.
Château Saint-Pierre 2022 is a Pomerol wine made from a vineyard of 1.6 hectares out of the property's 3 hectares. The vines are 30 years old on average and are located on the top of the plateau of the appellation, on mostly gravelly-sandy soils.
Winemaking and ageing
Manual harvesting. Vinification by plot of land with great precision. Fermentation in stainless steel and thermo-regulated concrete vats. Vatting period of 2 to 3 weeks. Devatting after running off. Aged for 15 to 18 months in barrels (50% new, 50% one wine) and amphorae.
Lively and intense, the nose mingles floral (violet) fragrances with delicately woody (sandalwood) notes.
A smooth attack gives way to an airy palate with aromas of black tea and rose blend with a creamy feel.
