2014 Tour St-Christophe, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)
Fantastic aromas of blackberries, flowers, chalk and blueberries. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Intense and structured.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Château Tour Saint Christophe 2014 has a very pure bouquet. There is some new oak to be subsumed, but there is plenty of fruit to support it. The palate is ripe and sensual on the entry with supple tannin, plush black cherry and blackberry fruit with a generous, modern-style opening with commendable length. This could turn out to be one of Saint Emilion's classier offerings in 2014. (NM)
The 2014 Tour Saint-Christophe is powerful, deep and intense, just as it was from bottle. Readers should expect an opulent, voluptuous Saint-Émilion built on textural richness. Dark cherry, mocha, licorice and spice infuse the expressive finish. Tour Saint-Christophe continues to move in the right direction under the leadership of Peter Kwok. The blend is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. (AG)
