Tour St Christophe 94js 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

94 Points, James Suckling: "Fantastic aromas of blackberries, flowers, chalk and blueberries. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Intense and structured. Give it two or three years to soften." 2/17 93 Points, Zachys Buying Team: “We had this wine side-by-side with the 2015 release for a great comparison. While the 2015 is a riper more modern vintage, 2014 is more classic, offering a little less texture and richness, but awesome elegance just the same. There are greater aromatics here, and on the palate a similar red and black fruit profile that is presented in a slightly more toned down style with additional notes of licorice and mocha. We managed to obtain a few extra cases from the Chateau for those that do not want to wait to experience the magic of Saint-Christophe.” (4/2016) 91 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2014 Tour Saint-Christophe is powerful, deep and intense, just as it was from bottle. Readers should expect an opulent, voluptuous Saint-Émilion built on textural richness. Dark cherry, mocha, licorice and spice infuse the expressive finish. Tour Saint-Christophe continues to move in the right direction under the leadership of Peter Kwok. The blend is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc." 2/17 90-92 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Tour Saint Christophe 2014 has a very pure bouquet. There is some new oak to be subsumed, but there is plenty of fruit to support it. The palate is ripe and sensual on the entry with supple tannin, plush black cherry and blackberry fruit with a generous, modern-style opening with commendable length. This could turn out to be one of Saint Emilion's classier offerings in 2014." 4/15
