Chateau Tour Saint Christophe crafts wines that are increasingly catching the attention of critics and Bordeaux lovers alike.  In 2012, the property was acquired by Bordeaux fanatic Peter Kwok and his daughter.  They already owned seven Bordeaux estates and were the driving force behind the quality of estates like Chateau Bellefont Belcier, Enclos Tourmaline, Haut-Brisson, and La Patache.  The father and daughter team quickly got to work restoring Tour Saint Christophe and their efforts increased the quality of wines at Tour St. Christophe earning them high praise from wine critics.  When Kwok bought the estate, Robert Parker predicted, "This is an estate to watch carefully as quality soars".  Several years later, the winery is at the top of the charts producing brilliant wines with each vintage.  Their wines also represent dazzling values.  Jeb Dunnuck wrote, "Don't miss a chance to try these wines.  Dollar for dollar, they're some of the best buys out there".  The 2017 Chateau Tour Saint Christophe Saint-Émilion Grand Cru is stunning with notes of blue fruits, violets, spring flowers, dried mulberries and hints of tobacco.  It's beautifully concentrated with remarkable purity, tremendous energy and pure power.  This Bordeaux is full-bodied, rich and opulent, yet vibrant with plush tannins and a creamy texture.  Enjoy! 

Jeb Dunnuck, 95 Points 

"From a picturesque vineyard on the east side of Saint-Emilion, not far from Chateau Barde-Haut the 2017 Chateau Tour Saint Christophe checks in as a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that was brought up in a mix of new and used barrels. This inky purple-hued beauty boasts stunning notes of blue fruits, crushed rocks, violets, and spring flowers. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and with remarkable purity as well as finesse in its tannins, this is another remarkable wine from this estate, which has been turning out brilliant wines in every vintage now. Don't miss it. Tasted twice." 

James Suckling, 93 Points 

"A spicy, fresh and intense red on the nose with chocolate. Medium to full body and very fine tannins that give a creamy texture. Juicy and long. A blend of 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc. Want to drink it now, but better after 2022."  

Wine Advocate, 92 Points 

"Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Tour Saint-Christophe (blended of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc) charges out of the glass with bold notions of dried mulberries, fruitcake and baked plums plus hints of tobacco, iron ore and tilled soil. Full-bodied, the palate is undeniably rich and opulent, yet the freshness injects vibrance and a sense of decorum, supported by plush tannins, finishing on a compelling mineral note. The alcohol here is knocking on 15%, but you wouldn't know it. (Psst, considering this is well over the 14% USA tariff threshold, this should find lots of takers in the States!)" 

Alcohol: 14.5%
