Offers a good, sappy core of dark plum, blackberry and fig, layered with brambly tannins and smoldering charcoal accents. Mouthwatering acidity lends the finish cut and length, while the dark fruit plays out through the finish. Best from 2017 through 2026.
Shows aromas and flavors of blueberries and minerals. Medium to full body, with polished tannins and a minerally aftertaste. Reminds me of the 2004.
There is probably too much wood here, both on the smell and the palate. It gives the wine weight, but takes away the fruit. Powerful and dense, it needs a long aging. Drink from 2017.
The dense, deep ruby/purple-colored 2011 Saint-Pierre is a more masculine wine in this light to mid-weight vintage. It reveals serious structure, tannin and meat, but whether or not it all comes together over the next 4-5 years is a legitimate question. With good purity and chewiness, it is a fuller, riper, bigger style, but it is not yet knit fully. There is plenty of potential, but only time will tell. Forget it for 3-4 years, and keep your fingers crossed.
Tasted blind. Very dark crimson. Not much real fruit concentration. A bit tarted up with oak. Jancis Robinson
The nose pops with licorice, smoke, black licorice, coffee bean and mocha. Soft, round, forward and very nice for this difficult vintage, the wine ends with dark, fresh, black cherries.by jeff leve in 2014
