Château Tour Saint-Christophe is a St.-Emilion Grand Cru, named after commune of Saint Christophe des Bardes.  It was purchased by financier and wine estate owner Peter Kwok in 2012, since which time the size of the vineyard has been increased from 6.5 to around 20 hectares.  Kwok also owns (amongst others), Enclos Tourmaline and Bellefont-Belcier

The terroir is clay and limestone soils and neighbours Le Tertre-Roteboeuf and Troplong Mondot. The vineyard is planted to 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc at at a density of 6,500 - 7,500 vines per hectare. Vines are managed using organic and biodynamic techniques. 50% of the wine is vinified using micro vinification.  The other half is fermented in 60% new, French oak barrels and aged for 18 months. Michel Rolland is the consultant oenologist and the General Manager is Jean-Christophe Meyrou.

Tasting Notes"Exhibiting notions of dark berries, blackberries and licorice, the 2022 Tour Saint Christophe is medium to full-bodied and has an enveloping texture with a fleshy core of fruit and powdery tannins leading to a long, rather concentrated finish. This blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc from vines planted on clay-limestone soil is a real success. 91-93 points" points" Yohan Castaing,"Inky damson, beautiful texture and glass staining colour. Smoky reduction on the nose (they do a late malolactic because it begins naturally, so this is not unusual). It clears to reveal intense dark berry fruit, oyster-shell salinity, has tension, depth and character, a little tight at this point, but this is going to age extremely well. 39hl/h , first vintage Grand Cru Classé on the labe, 25% new oak. Emmanuelle Fulchi d'Aligny techincal director, moving over from Château Angélus, and this is the first full vintage under her direction (just did the blend of 2021). 93 points""Another great wine from this château, the 2022 Château Tour Saint Christophe checks in as 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc brought up in 25% new French oak. It has a great nose of red plums, cassis, chalky minerality, and spice, and this full-bodied Saint-Emilion is impeccably balanced, with a pure, graceful mouthfeel, fine tannins, and outstanding length. The purity of fruit here is truly terrific. 94-96 points""Iodine, crushed stone, salt, oyster shell, ink pot. Fascinating. The palate is medium- to full-bodied with a firm framing of fruit, with fine tannins and electric acidity. Exceptional. pH of 3.48 with just under 15% alcohol. Still thinking about this. 95-96 points"
