James Suckling 92-93
A medium-bodied red with blackberry, black-cherry and some olive-skin character. It’s chewy and solid with outstanding tannin tension and a fresh finish.
The 2020 Saint-Pierre (Saint-Julien) is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. Inky, rich and explosive, the 2020 possesses magnificent intensity from start to finish. Crème de cassis, lavender, spice, chocolate, licorice, graphite and menthol infuse the 2020 with striking depth. The 2020 is heady and unctuous, but not at all overdone. It is one of my early favorites in this vintage, within its peer group. Tasted two times.
Anticipated maturity: 2035-2050
