Tour Saint Christophe 2020

Tour Saint Christophe

Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 96.0

Classified Grand Cru Classé in 2022 after a decade of ownership by the Kwok family, Château Tour Saint Christophe is an estate on the rise. Its vineyard is unique, seeing the vines planted on steep and narrow terraces in neat rows. These centuries-old dry-stone terraces sit on a bed of clay-limestone terroir and are planted with Merlot (c.80%) and Cabernet Franc (c.20%). The final blend is aged in 60% new French oak barrels. In turn, Château Tour Saint Christophe have created a refined, elegant, and textured wine that is punctuated by a powerful nose of ripe cassis and warm spices.

Clean and precisely-spliced black fruits, austerity in the tannins and a mocha, grilled coffee bean edging through the finish. Good quality and well balanced, intense to the point of slightly bitter on the final moments.

The 2020 Château Tour Saint Christophe showed spectacularly well, and based off past vintages, this shouldnt surprise anyone. Based on 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc raised in 40% new barrels (the balance is in second- and third-fill oak), it offers a full-bodied, incredibly pure, balanced style revealing subtle oak, terrific darker, almost blue fruits, lots of chocolate, leafy herb and mineral nuances, and gorgeous tannins. Its worth pointing out that this will be the last vintage made by the talented Jérôme Aguirre. This terrific Saint-Emilion will evolve for two decades.
