Tour Saint Christophe 2015
On the palate, the attack is fruity with an evolution on roundness and the chalky side, typical of Tour Saint Christophe's terroir. Endowed with a nice balance and an impressive aromatic delicacy, the freshness and tension are there. The mid-palate has the same notes of the cigar box. The saline finish characteristic for Tour Saint Christophe, explodes with fruit.
Blend: 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc

The Chateau overlooks beautiful dry stone terraces several hundred years old on a chalky-clay terroir. The vineyard is planted on this plateau where it has optimal sunlight and perfect natural drainage. The average age of the vines are thirty years old, they flourish and reach perfection in a limestone clay soil enhanced with sedimentary fragments of flint and chalk. It's this secret alchemy which makes the quality of our 'terroir'.
Aware of the richness of the legacy of the past and to preserve it, they undertook to restore Chateau Tour Saint Christophe. The objective was to revive the vineyard terraces with the disassembling and the reconstruction of this dry stone equipment as it had been built in the 18th century. About 1.5 km of dry-stone terraces have been renovated by re-shaping each stone by hand. A titanic work to preserve the original appearance of these unique terraces in Saint-Emilion.
