Winemaker Notes

Château Tour Saint Christophe 2015 has a deep red color nearly approaching the black. The first notes show minerality, sitting on very ripe red fruit. Then, spicy wood notes somewhat reminiscent of a cigar box / which are not unlike the nose of a box cigar. After airing the spicy part grows to almost camphorated notes. The fruit focuses on a black fruit jam.

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

James Suckling
Intense aromas of blackberries, blueberries and spices. Hints of limestone and a graphite edge also come out now. Full-bodied, structured and muscular. Layered and intense. Dark berries and hints of sea salt on the finish. Steely minerality and freshness. Wow. Drink in 2024 but so interesting to taste.

Jeb Dunnuck
A total blockbuster from new owner Peter Kwok, who purchased the estate in 2012, the 2015 Château Tour Saint Christophe is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc brought up in 40% new wood. It boasts a deep purple color and sensational notes of ripe currants and crème de cassis, as well as background graphite, cedar, and spice nuances. Full-bodied, deep, layered, and perfectly balanced, with sweet tannin and integrated acidity, it’s one of those wines where everything is in the right place, it has no hard edges, and a beautiful finish. It needs short-term cellaring to come together, but you shouldn’t miss this beauty. It’s worth mentioning the estate is managed by the talented Jérôme Aguirre and utilizes Michel Rolland as a consultant.

Wine Enthusiast
This is a perfumed, minty wine, attractive and freshly fruity. It has great acidity and fine, firm tannins, ripe and potentially with a generous, full texture. Barrel Sample: 91-93

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, matured for 18 months in oak, 40% new, the 2015 Tour Saint Christophe is deep garnet-purple in color with notes of wild blueberries, plum preserves and fruitcake plus touches of dried flowers and underbrush. The concentrated, full-bodied palate is packed with ripe blue and black fruits, supported by a solid foundation of plush, velvety tannins and finishes with wonderful length.

Chateau Tour Saint Christophe was acquired by Peter Kwok and his daughter Karen in 2012. The property is located on the appellation of Saint-Emilion situated at the limit between the two villages of Saint-Emilion and Saint Christophe des Bardes. Today the estate adds 20 hectares.

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.
