Chateau Tour St Christophe Grand Cru

2016

Chateau Tour St. Christophe

Saint Emilion, Libournais, Bordeaux, France

"The 2016 Tour Saint-Christophe, the Saint Emilion estate of Peter Kwok whose eye-catching terraced vineyard looks upon Barde-Haut from the other side of the valley, is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc picked between 5- 23 October and matured in 40% new oak. It has a sensual bouquet with black cherries and cassis scents, the new oak neatly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet and supple tannin, a little richer than the 2015 and yet still managing to translate the terroir with aplomb. Tasted twice, one bottle showed a little more precision than the other, but I remain confident that this will turn into a Saint Emilion worth investigating. Drink Date 2023-2040."

Score: 92/94 Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (230), April 2017
