2015 Pierre 1er, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1256392 94 points James Suckling

 Aromas of flowers, blackberries and hints of spices. Full-bodied, yet integrated and tight. Shows poise and precision. Beautiful. Class. Drink now or hold.  (2/2018)

90 points Jeb Dunnuck

 The 2015 Château Pierre 1er is a juicy, forward, delicious effort that offers lots of red and black currants, leafy herbs, cedar wood and sous bois. This medium-bodied, charming, moderately concentrated 2015 has plenty of fruit, a rounded texture, moderate acidity and ripe tannin, all suggesting it will keep for a decade or more.  (11/2017)

87-90 points Wine Spectator

 This solid red offers a core of plum and boysenberry compote flavors, with well-integrated toast and a good bolt of licorice on the finish. (JM, Web Only-2016)

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
