Chateau Tour Saint Christophe Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2015 Red Blend 750ml

"Ok, here’s the bunker-buster Michel Rolland wine I was expecting (he consults on this also, he is busy), 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and somehow 5% Napalm. This is the biggest boy in today’s sandbox, rich, textured and gloriously boozy; the nose is like a blueberry bagel and a slice of Christmas cake started playing leapfrog (that is a weird descriptor but try it and tell me I’m wrong). Although robust, the wine is mostly in balance with itself, the tannins are a tad pokey but with food you won’t mind. Will be spectacular in 5 years." - Jordan Carrier, Everything Wine Vintage room consultant

  • Château Tour Saint Christophe 2015 has a deep red color nearly approaching the black. The first notes show minerality, sitting on very ripe red fruit. Then, spicy wood notes somewhat reminiscent of a cigar box / which are not unlike the nose of a box cigar. After airing the spicy part grows to almost camphorated notes. The fruit focuses on a black fruit jam.

    On the palate, the attack is fruity with an evolution on roundness and the chalky side, typical of Tour Saint Christophe's terroir. Endowed with a nice balance and an impressive aromatic delicacy, the freshness and tension are there. The mid-palate has the same notes of the cigar box. The saline finish characteristic for Tour Saint Christophe, explodes with fruit.

  • The vines of Château Saint-Christophe live well on the plateau of Saint-Emilion. Rooted for on average half a century in a clay limestone rich terroir, the vines soak up just enough rain to flower abundantly in the southwestern sun. Year after year, the grapes grow rich and sweet. Surrounded by prestigious 'Classified' chateaux (Laroque, Fombrauge, Troplong-Mondot, Barde-Haut), the vineyard of Chateau Saint-Christophe is ideally situated on the high hills of Saint-Emilion's plateau.
  • 94POINTS! James Suckling, 2017 Vintage

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

    97 POINTS! James Suckling, 2016 Vintage

    "This is superb: a triumph for the vintage considering how complicated it was in St.-Emilion. Elegance with power. Full-bodied, intense and forthright. Wonderful length and depth. Better than the 2015."

    96 POINTS! James Suckling, 2015 Vintage

    "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."

    94 POINTS! James Suckling, 2014 Vintage

    "Fantastic aromas of blackberries, flowers, chalk and blueberries. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Intense and structured. Give it two or three years to soften."
