80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc
Château Tour Saint Christophe was acquired by Peter Kwok and his daughter Karen in 2012. The property islocated on the apppellation of Saint-Emilion situated at the limit between the two villages of Saint- Émilion and Saint Christophe des Bardes. Today the estate adds 20 hectares. The Château overlooks beautiful dry stone terraces several hundred years old on a chalky-clay terroir. Aware of the richness of the legacy of the past and to preserve it, we undertook to restore Château Tour Saint Christophe. The objective was to revive our vineyard terraces with the disassembling and the reconstruction of this dry stone equip- ment asit had been builtin the 18th century. About1.5 km of dry-stone terraces have been renovated by re-shaping each stone by hand.
What The Critics Say
96-97/100 James Suckling
"This is superb: a triumph for the vintage considering how complicated it was in St.-Emilion. Elegance with power. Full-bodied, intense and forthright. Wonderful length and depth. Better than the 2015. March 2017."
95/100 Wine Cellar Insider
"Deep, dark and almost opaque in color, the wine is made from blending 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc . Ripe and loaded with fresh fruit, with a real sensation of purity and silky, polished tannins and a hint of chocolate in the finish. The wine reached 14.5% alcohol with pH of 3.7."
91-94 /100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
"The 2016 Tour Saint Christophe is gorgeous. Exotic, ripe and voluptuous, the 2016 possesses striking aromatics and plenty of presence. Smoke, grilled herbs, inky dark fruit, crème de cassis and leather are beautifully delineated in the glass. This is the first recent vintage I can remember tasting that is not overextracted. There is a real expression of fruit. Suffice it to say, this is a very positive development for the château. Michel Rolland is the consultant. Tasted two times."
