The estate was created in the 17th century although a number of legacies subsequently led to it being split up and dispersed. Through a combination of good luck and tenacity, in 1982 Henri Martin was able to put the estate back together the way it had been in 1855, the year of the famous classiﬁcation.
Ever since, thanks to the investments made by the owners, Saint-Pierre has been acknowledged by everyone as a perfect representative of the Grands Crus Classés of the prestigious Saint-Julien appellation.
A vineyard covering 17 hectares, with an average vine age of 50 years, located in the middle of the commune of Beychevelle on soil made up of Gunzian gravel covering a layer of clay and sand. The grapes are 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.
Once the grapes have been picked by hand, the harvest is vinified in the traditional way in heat-regulated stainless steel vats, in order to produce truly exceptional wines which can be laid down for a long time. The wine then spends 14 to 16 months being aged in casks, half of which are replaced every year.
