|90-92 THE WINEADVOCATE: "Deep purple-black colored, the 2020 Pierre 1er comes barreling out of the glass with bold scents of baked blackberries, stewed black plums and mince pie, plus hints of menthol, black olives and charcoal. The medium to full-bodied palate is packed with juicy black fruits, supported by finely grained tannins and bags of freshness, finishing long and layered."
92 DECANTER: "Well-placed fruits, this walks through the palate with a careful step. It has chewy tannins and some expansive fruits through the mid palate - an enjoyable wine from owner Jean Dubreuilh. Drinking Window 2024 - 2038"
95-96 JAMES SUCKLING: "This is a solid red with lots of blackberry, crushed-stone, pine-needle and iron character. It’s full-bodied with layers of ripe, chewy tannins that are polished and poised. Extremely well crafted. A top wine from here."
90-92 JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2020 Château Pierre 1Er should be outstanding and has a spicy, red and black-fruited style carrying subtle leather, dried earth, and loamy soil-like aromas and flavors. It’s medium-bodied on the palate, has a great texture, some chalky minerality, and is just a classic Saint-Emilion that will keep for 15+ years."
