2016 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion (3L) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1300814 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This has a rich and ripe dark-fruit nose with a wealth of stony attraction and a lighter, floral edge. The palate has a very rich core of deeply ripe, fleshy fruit, framed in cedary oak. Really impressive clarity and web-like tannins. Superb finish. Try from 2023. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Tour Saint-Christophe is made up of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. It was aged in 40% new, 40% one-year-old and 20% two-year-old oak for 18 months. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it sings of roses, chocolate-covered cherries, redcurrant jelly and cinnamon stick with touches of cigar box and forest floor. Big, full-bodied and richly fruited yet with great tension, it has a compellingly perfumed palate and gorgeous velvety texture with great persistence. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Tour Saint Christophe has a wonderful, beautifully defined bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, crushed stone and hints of pressed flowers, all very focused and delineated. The palate is well balanced, with fine but quite firm tannins and well-judged acidity, and very persistent toward the finish. I appreciate the harmony and intensity of this Tour Saint Christophe. A wonderful Saint-Émilion from 'team Kwok'! (NM) 94+ Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

93 points Antonio Galloni for Vinous: "The 2016 Tour Saint Christophe is a potent, tightly wound wine that is going to need quite a bit of time to be at its best. That is surprising, as the 2016 was quite a bit more sensual en primeur. Even so, the 2016 is a gorgeous, hugely promising Saint-Émilion. Dark red cherry, plum, espresso, leather and tobacco build as this beautifully layered wine gradually reveals its many charms. There is so much to look forward to, once the tannins soften a bit."
