Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

94 RP / 94 JD / 92 VM

Possibly one of two of the most concentrated St.-Juliens (Léoville Las Cases is the other), this 2005 shows wonderfully sweet tannin, a dense ruby/purple color, and lots of crème de cassis, licorice and spice. Full-bodied, opulent, and impressive, it is surprisingly soft, though it will certainly age nicely for 15-20+ years. - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Based largely on Cabernet Sauvignon, with roughly 20% Merlot and 5-6% Cabernet Franc, the 2005 Chateau Saint-Pierre is a brooding monster of a wine that gives up full-bodied, powerful notes of black fruits, graphite, and chocolate. This ripe, incredibly concentrated 2005 needs another 3-4 years of bottle age to gain a touch of elegance but will cruise in the cellar for decades in cold cellars. - Jeb Dunnuck

Good red-ruby color. Superripe aromas of plum, mocha and graphite. Silky-sweet, deep and broad, with terrific concentration of currant and licorice flavors complicated by leather, herbs and pepper. Finishes with thoroughly ripe, broad tannins and noteworthy length and power. Costanzo says this wine needs another six months in bottle to gain in nuance. - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media
