The Tour Saint-Christophe estate in Saint Emilion boasts a beautiful terraced vineyard which looks upon Barde-Haut from the other side of the valley. Owned by Peter Kwok, one of the first Asian investors in Bordeaux in 1997 with the purchase of Haut-Brisson, Tour St.-Christophe is typically made of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc (although this vintage is 85/15). Kwok, who lives in Hong Kong but was born in Vietnam, owns 40 hectares of vines with Chateaux Tour Saint Christophe, Haut-Brisson and Tourans in St Emilion, plus Enclos Tourmaline and La Patache in Pomerol, and Enclos de Viaud in Lalande de Pomerol.

Wine AdvocateA 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.

Wine Enthusiast91-93. Barrel Sample. 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.
