Chateau Saint Pierre 2008

£60.00

Current stock: 9

Chateau Saint Pierre, 4eme Grand Cru Classe, Saint Julien, Bordeaux, 2008  

Grapes: 75% CABERNET SAUVIGNON, 15% MERLOT, 10% CABERNET FRANC, manual harvest, aged 14-16 months in barrel (50% new each year)

The Chateau was reformed into one property again by Henri Martin in 1982.

"As I predicted from barrel, this stunning effort is a wine to buy by the case. Its opaque ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of graphite, barbecue smoke, blackberries and black currants. The full-bodied, textured 2008 Saint-Pierre reveals a skyscraper-like mouthfeel along with tremendous viscosity and unctuosity. One of the richest and potentially longest-lived 2008s, it is a fabulous sleeper of the vintage. Drink it over the next 20+ years."

93/100 points, Robert M. Parker Jr, Wine Advocate, May 2011

"Dark purplish crimson. Rich, intense nose. Very solid and dense. It seems a little New Worldy and sweet to me."

16.5/20 points, Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com,
