Ch. Saint-Pierre (0.75 L)
WA: One of the best Saint-Pierres I have ever tasted, this dense ruby/purple-colored wine seems to be approaching full maturity. With a big, sweet nose of vanilla, smoke, black cherry and currant jam intermixed with some tobacco and licorice, this opulent, full-bodied wine is fleshy, low in acidity, and a treat to drink. Anticipated maturity: Now-2012. Last tasted, 3/02.
