2016 Château Tour Saint-Christophe  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 95

With layers of ripe, juicy fruits, crushed stone, truffle, licorice and smoke, this is showing just great. There is volume, depth and definition, with energy and length. Lay this down for 7 years and enjoy it over the next 15 years or even longer.

2015 Château Tour Saint-Christophe  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 95

Dark in color, with a smoky, truffle, earthy, licorice and black cherry nose, the wine is supple, silky, concentrated, long and fresh. There is length and complexity in the finish. This is probably the best value in all of Bordeaux today for high quality wine at a fair price.

This just keeps getting better with age. The wine is now, silky, supple and sensuous. The licorice, black cherries, wet earth, smoke and espresso stand out in the crowd. The finish is all about its softness. If you're looking for a contender for the best QPR from Bordeaux in the 2015 vintage, this your wine. Drink it young for the fruit, or age it for more secondary nuances.

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.

2014 Château Tour Saint-Christophe  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92

Continuing to develop well, adding more softness and opulence to the texture, complexities to the nose and palate and length to the finish, it is hard to find a better buy from Saint Emilion these days.

This vintage is not only from a great terroir but talented team. From a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, this wine exhibits deep color. On the nose you will quickly find licorice, chocolate, espresso and black cherries, easing into a graceful, lavish, polished and easy-drinking wine. A soft, round finish of sweet boysenberries leaves a permanent impression. As we predicted last year, Tour Saint Christophe is a wine to watch. 90-92 Pts

2013 Château Tour Saint-Christophe  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 89

Mineral-driven with oak and plum notes in the nose, the wine features a sweetness to the fresh, medium-bodied dark red fruits that should improve with age. From a blend of 82% Merlot with 18% Cabernet Franc, the wine reached 13.3% alcohol. The wine was produced using micro-vinification techniques. This is an estate to watch for in future vintages as the terroir is great and the owner, Peter Kwok has a spare no expense attitude and the drive to make the best wine possible. 88-90 Pts
