Winemaker's Notes

Pronounced purple color with an intense nose of black fruit and cassis. The mouth has a perfectly structured balance of tannins and alcohol. The long finish is complex with an explosion of coffee and vanilla. A classic Saint-Julien year that assures a place at the table.

Critical Acclaim

"A candidate for one of the finest St.-Juliens of the vintage, St.-Pierre's 2006 is one of the smaller productions in this consistent appellation, making it difficult to find in the marketplace. Its deep opaque purple color is accompanied by notes of roasted herbs, charcoal, graphite, and extravagant creme de cassis and licorice. Full-bodied, powerful, deep, and rich with outstanding balance, purity, texture, and length, this stunning 2006 will be very long-lived. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2030."
93 Points

"Ruby-red. Sexy aromas and flavors of black- and redcurrant, menthol, licorice and nutty oak, lifted by a violet topnote. Supple, classically dry and quite concentrated, with juicy acidity giving cut to the flavors and extending the finish. A sound tannic spine should ensure at least two decades of development in bottle for this very suave Saint-Julien. This has turned out very well."
91 Points

"This offers blackberry jam, with licorice and floral undertones. Full-bodied and chewy, with slightly austere tannins, but also fleshy and well-structured. A textbook claret. Should age nicely. Best after 2014."
