Why Buy Me
The historic Château Croix Figeac, which became Château Pierre 1er in 2014, is a tribute to the owner’s father. Only the name and the label have changed. The quality of the wine remains the same. On the old village of Saint-Emilion, on the edge of the Pomerol appellation area, neatly tucked between such luminaries as Château Cheval Blanc and Figeac.
Robert Parker 92 Points: “The 2016 Pierre 1er is medium garnet-purple colored and delivers scents of kirsch, redcurrants and black cherries with suggestions of roses, powdered cinnamon and fallen leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate features a great intensity of spicy red berry flavors with a velvety texture and oodles of freshness, finishing long and perfumed.”
