K&L Notes

91-94 points Antonio Galloni in Vinous: "The 2018 Tour Saint Christophe is a wine of real depth and intensity. Black cherry, chocolate, licorice, spice and leather build through to the creamy, resonant finish. There is plenty of the density and volume readers have come to expect, but also less extraction than in the past, and that is a good thing. Consulting winemaker Michel Rolland really seems to have dialed it in here. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Tasted three times." (4/2019)

    This was our first stop on the 2018 en primeur campaign for good reason. Tour St. Christophe is a rising star in St. Emilion, and represents an excellent opportunity for value for customers in the know. This was a standout for all price points in St. Emilion. Rich brambly black fruit, a touch of earthy graphite, powerful structure yet impeccably balanced, this is a wine made for the long haul, yet I suspect will be quite enjoyable upon release.

    What is the greatest value in all of St. Emilion wine? It's a tough call in my opinion as my top 2 choices are owned and made by the same team. The Peter Kwok estates of Ch. Tour Saint Christophe and Ch. Haut Brisson are made by the talented team of J.C Meyrou and Jerome Aquirre. Both are very different wines but both feature beautiful pure fruit. TSC has we call it, is loaded with lively blue fruit with lots of spice, lift,freshness and a long limestone finish. The sales stats and the taste don't lie!

    Dark purple in color with a toasty upfront nose, this wine shows intense black fruits, black licorice, coco powder, plums and smoke. Tannins are big but ripe. This should be a big winner for the money in 2018!

    There are few wineries in the world on a qualitative run like the folks at Tour Saint Christophe are experiencing right now. The 2018 continues that trend and shows the deeply fruited character of the vintage with deep aromas of figs and black plum leading to a palate with chalky tannin, ripe fruit, and baking chocolate. There is good depth here and although it'll be hard to resist young, it has the structure that will demand a few years.
