Château Tour Saint-Christophe 2017

aint-Emilion Grand Cru AOC

This St Emilion Grand Cru really hit the mark in 2017. 93-94 points from James Suckling and 92+ from Wine Advocate. It is bold and ripe, textured and muscular in all the right measures. Aged in new oak, it is a serious claret with ageing potential.

This superb, 20-hectare Saint Emilion property, not far from the renowned Valandraud estate, was purchased by Peter Kwok in 2012. An addition to his extensive portfolio on Bordeaux's Right Bank. He has since made the château fully organic and biodynamic – a clear indication of the team's meticulous approach every step of the process. What's more, they have the renowned Michel Rolland as consultant. Using largely, densely planted Merlot, supplemented by Cabernet Franc, and aged 60% in new oak for 18 months, this is a powerful claret. It's much weightier and more muscular than many from this vintage, which was noted for its finesse more than its power. For drinking now, decant early. Alternatively cellar for a decade or so. A fine dinner red.

"Dense and layered red with dark berry, volcanic ash and white pepper. Full-bodied, chewy. Muscular" James Suckling
