Chateau Tour Saint Christophe Saint Emilion 2015
Château Tour Saint Christophe 2015 has a deep red color nearly approaching the black. The first notes show minerality, sitting on very ripe red fruit. Then, spicy wood notes somewhat reminiscent of a cigar box / which are not unlike the nose of a box cigar. After airing the spicy part grows to almost camphorated notes. The fruit focuses on a black fruit jam. In the mouth, the attack is on the fruit with an evolution on roundness and the chalky side, typical of our terroir. Endowed with a nice balance and an impressive aromatic delicacy, the freshness and tension are there. The mid-palate remembers the notes of the cigar box. The saline finish characteristic for Tour Saint Christophe, explodes on the fruit.

Wine Enthusiast91-93. Barrel Sample. This is a perfumed, minty wine, attractive and freshly fruity. It has great acidity and fine, firm tannins, ripe and potentially with a generous, full texture.
