Château Saint-Pierre

750 mL bottle  |   LCBO#:  667592

Highly coloured in the glass, with aromas of violets spiralling through. On the palate this is more bilberry and blueberry than tight cassis, with slate and bitter coffee ground notes. There's very little light peeking through the tannins at this stage, and again I get the architectural feel of a 2010. Monumental and extremely accomplished, this is easy to recommend, living up to its early promise. Matured in 50% new oak, with malo partly in barrel. Drinking Window: 2024-2040. Score - 95.
