The 2015 Tour Saint Christophe is the most beautiful wine I have tasted off this property. Dark, sumptuous and yet also strikingly vivid, the 2015 possesses superb nuance to balance its natural intensity. Cloves, new leather, crème de cassis and sweet spices give the 2015 much of its unctuous feel and overall texture. This is a superb showing from Tour Saint Christophe and the team led by proprietor Peter Kwok and consultant Michel Rolland. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Tour Saint-Christophe, owned by Peter Kwok since 2012, is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc cropped at 33 hl/ha between 3-16 October and matured in 40% new oak. It has an intense nose, perhaps slightly on the alcoholic side due to the Merlot (14.8%). The palate is more controlled and refined. There is still some new oak to be absorbed, but the tannins seem fine, and it is endowed with blood orange and citrus fruit lending freshness and tension on the long, sensual finish. Bottle-age will temper the nose and it should ultimately turn into a very impressive Saint Emilion. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2021-2045

Extremely firm and silky. Dark berry, violet, salt and mineral. Full body. Energy, vibrant and verve. Layered and compressed. Best ever here. 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Apr 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

From a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc , there is a good depth of color in the glass. Oyster shell, boysenberry, espresso and cherry blossoms create the nose. The wine is fleshy, fat and rich with density and opulent textures. This showy wine is the best example produced since the new owner, Peter Kwok, took over the estate.
