New world cult Cab lovers will find a lot to like with this one. Dense, fruit forward, and hedonistic. Not showing much now other than its showy oak character and massive fruit.

The 2015 Tour Saint Christophe was impressive from barrel and is equally impressive from bottle. Red cherry/raspberry jam, exotic spice and floral notes fill out in a sumptuous, racy Saint-Émilion loaded with personality. Even with all of its overtness, the 2015 retains a good bit of freshness as well. This is a fabulous showing from a property that continues to improve under the stewardship of owner Peter Kwok and consulting winemaker Michel Rolland. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Feb 2018)

Dark fruit, strawberry, integrated oak on the nose. Silky tannins and medium high acidity. Serious wine, but so delicious!

This is a young, big, modern right banker. It was worth checking out at its price point, but not my cup of tea.
