About Chateau Saint-Pierre:
Under the Empire, Château Saint-Pierre was one of the most important domaines of Saint-Julien.
Today, with an average vine age of 50 years, the vineyard now covers
17 hectares, planted with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.
Enjoying a fantastic terroir of gravelly soil, below which lie sand and clay, the vines, in a double Guyot training system, produce an average of 45 hectoliters per hectare using a planting density of 10,000 vines per hectare.
Jean-Louis Triaud has great ambitions and conducts a rigorous selection in order to achieve his goals of great wine.
"The annual production of Saint-Pierre is about 90 tons, which, after strict selection, becomes only 50 tons, which in wine terms is the equivalent of 5,000 cases for the Grand Vin. My desire is to make exceptional wines worthy of the best Crus in the area. It is a challenge, but the potential is there and we provide the necessary means."
