"Pretty high austerity and salinity in this one, reflecting the higher percentage of Cabernet Franc and the full emphasis of limestone soils. Will bide its time, and should be a delicious glass of wine in five or six years - the blueberry, gunsmoke and grilled rosemary finish is extremely promising. A yield of 37hl/ha. 40% new oak. 3.6pH. Drinking Window 2025 - 2040."
THE WINE ADVOCATE 92-94+
"In 2012, Hong Kong-based Peter Kwok purchased this vineyard located in Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes. The average age of vines is 30 years old. The wine is aging in 40% new oak barrels, 40% one-year-old barrels and 20% two-year-old barrels. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, with fruit from the Cassevert lieu-dit, and the wine has 14.3% alcohol at a pH of 3.6. Deep purple-black in color, the 2019 Tour Saint-Christophe leaps from the glass with gregarious notes of fresh red and black cherries, mulberries and wild blueberries plus suggestions of eucalyptus, chocolate pie, cinnamon stick and clove oil with a waft of cedar chest. The full-bodied palate has seriously impressive freshness, featuring a firm, finely grained frame and loads of energetic black fruit layers, finishing long and spicy."
