Bordeaux “power, stature, gravitas, and density” and the last bottles.
From 2003-2009, Saint-Pierre was on a hot streak. But in Issue #194 of The Wine Advocate, Robert Parker alerted collectors worldwide when he called the Saint-Pierre a “candidate for one of the top wines of this remarkable  vintage,” and said that this very 2010 Château Saint-Pierre, “reminded me somewhat of a St. Julien version of another of the superstars of the vintage, the 2010 Pichon Longueville Baron.” Parker said this knockout blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot is “a wine of great power, stature, gravitas, and density.” Régisseur Jean-Louis Triaud’s 2010 is deep purple in color, with a luscious primary-fruit nose of crushed black fruits, cassis, graphite, and tobacco. Broad, dense, and palate-coating on the attack, massively concentrated and tightly wound, Parker suggests waiting until 2020 to pop a cork — and enjoying the 2010 Château Saint-Pierre over the following 40 years! So when our friends at St.-Pierre called last week to say supplies are dwindling and offered what is sure to be the last 36 bottles, we jumped at the chance. Direct from the château in perfect condition and provenance.
We just can’t keep the stuff in stock. We’ve offered Robert Parker’s 97-point “Superstar” 2010 Château St.-Pierre four times to Wine Access clients and each time our tiny allotment disappeared in a few hours. Ever since Robert Parker announced that he would no longer be attending the en primeur tastings in Bordeaux, importers and collectors have been swarming all over Parker’s 97-100 pointers from the 2010 vintage — along with 2009, the highest-rated vintage in history.
As to the 97-point 2010 Château Saint-Pierre, sales velocity skyrocketed. And once these bottles are gone, this could be the last of it — at least until some bottles appear on auction for double, triple, or quadruple today’s price!
