Château Saint-Pierre 2016: a Pomerol with powerful and soft tannins
A red wine produced in the Pomerol appellation, Château Saint-Pierre boasts a vineyard of 1.6 hectares. The vines, which are aged 30 years on average, benefit from sandy-gravel soils rich in dirt iron. The property includes a vineyard consisting of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Château Saint-Pierre 2016 is aged for 18 months in oak barrels.
With its deep dark colour, almost black, the Château Saint-Pierre 2016 develops power on the nose with toasted notes and ripe fruit. One can experience a real pleasure on the palate, where the wine blends perfectly roundness and density. The tannins are nice and soft but showing great power.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
This is a very small property located between Le Pin and Vieux Château Certan. Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Saint-Pierre (Pomerol) gives compelling scents of kirsch, wild blueberries, plum preserves and spice cake with nuances of unsmoked cigars, cardamom, tilled soil and lavender. Medium to full-bodied, the palate possesses great elegance and poise with a firm, finely grained texture and loads of freshness on the long, mineral-laced finish.
