Receiving its best-ever scores of 95-96 points from James Suckling and potential 94 points from Wine Advocate, Antonio Galloni and Jeff Leve, this tiny 19 hectare St Emilion property has been one of the unexpected star performers of the vintage.
Château Tour St Christophe is located not far from the high-scoring cult garagiste Château Valandraud, and is owned by Hong Kong businessman Peter Kwok, whose 2015 Enclos Tourmaline was also immensely well received and sold out rapidly on release. The wines are made under the watchful eye of Bordeaux legend Michel Rolland and employ organic, biodynamic and sustainable vineyard management.
"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."
