Chateau Tour Saint Christophe 2019

How is it that my sister who doesn’t drink wine picks the absolute BEST bottles for me? This Saint Emilion Grand Cru wine was delicious. With a juicy rib-eye, it was big and bold and smooooth. Redolent of red and blue berries and subtle spice, it was incredibly easy to drink. It had a slightly heavier body than some of the sleek Bordeaux wines that I have had, which was perfect with steak and potatoes. The fruit was up-front in a good way and cut through the fat of the steak. I give this wine “five glugs!” I loved it.

Here’s what one REAL wine critic said: 94 points Antonio Galloni for Vinous: “The 2019 Tour Saint Christophe is a fabulous wine that marries fruit intensity and structure. Black cherry, graphite, dried herbs, menthol, licorice and spice give this driving, potent Saint-Émilion tons of character. Tour Saint-Christophe remains one of the greatest values in Bordeaux. Tasted two times.” (01/2022)

92 points Jane Anson for Inside Bordeaux: “The Vignobles K are becoming essential wines for sure-fire quality. Plump black cherry and damson fruits, a little upfront with the grilled oak right now that makes things a touch austere, but there is freshness running underneath and it will soften over the next few years. Good quality. Tasted twice. 37hl/ha yield, 40% new oak for ageing.” (10/2021)
