Winemaker Notes

The Barrel Sample for this wine is above 14% ABV.

*Please note that the Wine.com price of this Bordeaux Future does not include any tariffs. As of today, there remains a 25% tariff imposed on French wines by the U.S. and approved by the World Trade Organization related to the Airbus/Boeing trade dispute. We are hopeful that this tariff will be removed in advance of the wine being released to be imported into the U.S., as Bordeaux Futures typically ship 2-years after they are offered. Should any tariff still be in effect when the wine is ready to be imported, we will contact affected customers via email with an update to our plans and timing.

JS 97
James Suckling

This is tight with finesse and focus. Minerally and salty with an ultra-fine palate and polished tannins. It goes on and on and on. Strength and finesse at the same time. 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc. Barrel Sample: 96-97

Jeb Dunnuck
From an estate that continues to fire on all cylinders, the 2019 Château Tour Saint Christophe reveals a saturated purple color to go with a pretty, floral bouquet of black raspberries, mulberries, violets, graphite, and crushed stone. Fabulously balanced, medium to full-bodied, with good acidity as well as sweet tannins, it's a finesse oriented, elegant version of this cuvée that does everything right. This estate has backed off the power and ripeness over the past few vintages, and the wine is more elegant, balanced, and seamless. It's a better wine today.
Barrel Sample: 95-97

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
In 2012, Hong Kong-based Peter Kwok purchased this vineyard located in Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes. The average age of vines is 30 years old. The wine is aging in 40% new oak barrels, 40% one-year-old barrels and 20% two-year-old barrels. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, with fruit from the Cassevert lieu-dit, and the wine has 14.3% alcohol at a pH of 3.6. Deep purple-black in color, the 2019 Tour Saint-Christophe leaps from the glass with gregarious notes of fresh red and black cherries, mulberries and wild blueberries plus suggestions of eucalyptus, chocolate pie, cinnamon stick and clove oil with a waft of cedar chest. The full-bodied palate has seriously impressive freshness, featuring a firm, finely grained frame and loads of energetic black fruit layers, finishing long and spicy.

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.
