Winemaker's Notes


#43 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008

From one vintage to the next, one of the strengths of Chateau Pipeau is to offer consistent style and personality. It is a wine with expressive fruit, an opulent nose of red berries, roundness on the palate, with good length and a harmonious and elegant finish. Chateau Pipeau is very delightfull when young but it also has all the qualities for laying-down of a really great Saint-Emilion!

Critical Acclaim

"Beautiful blackberry, cherry and light vanilla aromas follow through to a full body, with coffee, smoke and berry character. Long and stylish. Velvety and balanced."
92 Points

"What a decadent, fruit-driven St.-Emilion! From a proprietor who delivers the goods in an upfront, gorgeously luscious, hedonistic manner, this lovely fruit-bomb reveals a dense purple color, a perfumed nose of sweet black cherries and black currants, incense, roasted herbs, and oak. Fleshy, full-bodied, and more structured than previous vintages (because of the vintage character), it is a hedonistic sleeper of the vintage that can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years."
