Established in the 17th century, Chateau Saint-Pierre was awarded the ranking of 4th Grand Cru Classé in the 1855 classification system. The estate became fragmented and it was not until 1982 that the passion of Henri Martin, part owner of Chateau Gloria, would elevate the estate to its former glory.
Located in the municipality of Beychevelle, the vineyard of 17 hectares is planted with vines aged 50 years on average. A majority of Cabernet Sauvignon vines is supplemented by Merlot and Cabernet Franc, planted on Gunzien gravel on sandy-clay subsoil. This very qualitative terroir has contributed to making the estate one of the most famous of the northern Medoc and Saint-Julien appellation. The wine has a very seductive profile, a roundness and maturity of the tannins.
Chateau Saint-Pierre is now the property of Henri Martin's daughter, Françoise Triaud. Her husband, Jean-Louis Triaud, has also been President of the Girondins de Bordeaux between 1996 and 2017, and is in charge of the General Management.
