“I like the aromas of blackberries, mushrooms and bark that flow through to a palate with a medium body, fine-grained tannins and a fresh finish. A thoroughly delicious wine from Château Tour Saint Christophe. Drink now and enjoy.” James Suckling, 90 Points
80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet France. This wine comes from young vines that were replanted by new owners earlier this decade. Before replanting, they terraced a section of the vineyards they thought was exceptional....and guess where the grapes came from for this cuvee?! One can only imagine what the future holds for this estate. Château Tour Saint Christophe is located in St. Christophe-des-Bardes at the border of St. Emilion. The vineyard is unique as it is partly planted on narrow terraces and tended in tight rows. The cascading landscape unfolds on the hillside of Cassevert overlooking the St. Laurent valley. The property is home to beautiful centuries-old dry stone terraces on a clay-limestone terroir. About 1.5 km of dry-stone terraces have been repaired by hand, a two-year process. The vineyard, with vines of an average age of 30 years, is orientated south-southwest and benefits from an ideal exposure to sun and perfect natural drainage conditions.
