Grand Cru Bordeaux for the cellar, crafted in famed Saint-Emilion close to Valandraud and Fleur Cardinale, you find Peter Kwok's Chateau Tour Saint Christophe. One of the best values in Bordeaux today, Saint Emilion Grand Cru at this price is hard to come by. Especially one with this pedigree and ratings, as Antonio Galloni calls the 2019 Vintage: "one of the greatest values in Bordeaux." The vines are in the commune of Saint Christophe des Bardes, 20 hectares planted on clay and limestone soils with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, organic & biodynamically farmed. Peter has intentionally kept the price of Chateau Tour Saint Christophe low, thinking as people learn of the quality, the price will increase. Still in its youth with a 20+ year drinking window ahead of it, now is the time to buy this amazing Bordeaux before the prices go up!
"Beautiful, intense fruit, dark-earth and chocolate character on the nose. Full-bodied with great density and plush, fine tannins that give a fine-velvet texture. It’s extremely long, polished and sophisticated. Needs time to come together, but expressive and glorious. Fantastic relative value." James Suckling, 96 Points
"The 2019 Tour Saint Christophe builds on the promise it showed from barrel. This sample was actually tasted at my home, where I afforded it a two-hour decant. It revealed precocious yet controlled blackberry and blueberry fruit scents, with that violet component still intact. The tannins have not lost any of their grippiness or assertiveness. This is a Saint-Émilion that is in for the long haul. Great potential." Vinous Media, 95 Points
