Henri Martin, who hails from a Bordelais Family with more than 300 years hostory, purchased this estate back in 1982, when it what was known as Saint Pierre Sevaistre. He renamed the property, St. Pierre.
Today, Chateau St. Pierre is managed by Jean-Louis Triaud who is also in charge of Gloria and a few others of Henri Martin's estates. If you are into your sports, you'd be interested to hear that Jean-Louis is also the owner of the Girondins de Bordeaux, the professional football team of Bordeaux!
'The final blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot has resulted in a wine of great power, stature, gravitas and density. The wine has a black purple color and a brilliant nose of scorched earth, creme de cassis, espresso roast, blackberries, truffles and licorice. Full-bodied, extremely powerful, yet with abundant sweet tannin, this stunning effort should prove sensational if given 7-10 years of cellaring. It should also last for 30-40 years. This is another brilliant wine from Jean-Louis Triaud, who is also responsible for the brilliant resurrection of the cru bourgeois, Gloria. This is one of the smallest estates in St.-Julien, with only about 6,000 cases produced, and even less were produced in 2010 than in 2009.' 97pts, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate.February, 2013
