Hey there! You know, we were just looking at comparable St. Emilion wines from the tremendous ‘16 vintage that scored 90 points. How about Chateau Gracia, Chateau Quintus, and others in the $60-$90 range? How about this one for less than 2 movie tickets? BORDEAUX, baby!!

We never get enough Bordeaux -- St. Emilion in particular. Les Terrasses de Saint Christophe is the second label of Château Tour Saint Christophe (in 2016 the flagship wine scored JS96 points in addition to a slew of 94 point scores) and is a jaw-dropping value at our wicked-nice price. In a vintage such as 2016 (here we go again about this vintage...), it should be bought by the case. We don’t have a lot this time though (guess people are catching on, eh?) so please do what you must if you love Bordeaux like we do!! 

Fresh-picked berries, silky tannin, fine, flowery nose, good flesh and mouthcoating-ness (for a wine priced like this??!!) and an elegant, generally classy feel to it. Perfect for sipping at your home office desk, as we currently are (no judging!). This vintage has EVERYONE coming out of the woodwork, so grab what you can as we will probably sell out quick! Have a great Saturday!

“A very floral and gently leafy edge with lighter red fruit, leading to a very smoothly fleshy, red-fruited palate that?s sleek, even and elegant. Drink or hold.”

About The Producer

Chateau Tour Saint Christophe was acquired by Peter Kwok and his daughter Karen in 2012. 

The property overlooks beautiful centuries-old dry stone terraces on a clay-limestone terroir. In order to preserve its rich heritage, Peter undertook to restore the Chateau. The objective was to revive the vineyard terraces with the reconstruction of dry stone walls as it had been built in the 18th century. About 1.5 km of dry-stone terraces have been repaired by hand, a two-year process to preserve the appearance of these unique terraces in Saint-Emilion.

Chateau Tour Saint Christophe is located in Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes at the frontiers of Saint-Emilion. The vineyard is a unique feature in Saint-Emilion, as it is partly planted on narrow terraces where the vineyard is tended in tight rows. This cascading landscape unfolds on the hillside of Cassevert overlooking the Saint Laurent valley. The vineyard, with vines of an average age of thirty years, is orientated South-Southwest and benefits from an ideal exposure to sun and perfect natural drainage conditions. It is this secret alchemy which contributes to the quality of our terroir. 

Today the property consists of 20 hectares on the appellation of Saint Emilion Grand Cru.
