The 2014 Pierre 1er (formerly La Croix Figeac) is plump, delicious and forward. Dark cherries, plums, iron smoke, new leather and cloves jump from the glass in a ripe, juicy St. Emilion endowed with notable near and medium term appeal. Although not especially complex, the 2014 quite open and tasty. Best of all, it should be a terrific value.
Tangerines with cedar and dark-fruit flavors and spices. Lovely velvety texture frames dark fruit flavors. Fine-grained and linear. Better in 2021.
The fresh blackberry sauce and plum paste notes are laced with a dried star anise edge. Shows a hint of graphite on the finish.
The Château Pierre 1er has an attractive blackcurrant bouquet that is deftly integrated with the oak. The palate is medium bodied witih grainy tannin, a little rustic in style but in a positive way, chunky but with plenty of fruit and freshness on the finish. This should be a delight once in a bottle.
Powerful, tight, ripe fruit, tight tannin with a certain rusticity but also maturity, a beautiful, sappy extension that bears witness to the local breed.
