La Croix Saint Christophe Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2020

La Croix Saint Christophe Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2020

At the end of 2011, Peter Kwok (Owner of Chateau Haut Brisson and Enclos de Viaud) acquired Château Tour Saint Christophe with his daughter Karen and La Croix Saint Christophe is the second label of the Château. Traditional farming, Guyot pruning with natural grass between the rows combined with working the soil under the vine, de-budding, leaf removal and green harvest if necessary to maintain the environmental balance. 40 year old vines, and 15 months in French Oak Barrels (60% new). A beautiful texture, nice concentrated flesh, fiery while retaining the freshness of the vintage. La Croix Christophe is an elegant Saint-Émilion with all of the ingredients to continue to age gracefully for another 10 years.

92 Points - Cellar Tracker (2018)

91 Points - International Wine Report (2016)

"The 2016 La Croix Saint Christophe opens to aromas of dark cherries and blueberries woven together with spices and cigar box that all come together in the glass. This medium-plus bodied red impresses with its lovely polished frame and nice overall balance and concentration throughout. This should offer a moderate drinking window which could span a decade, however it will be a wonderful wine to approach this in its youth."

Taste

Concentrated nose with hints of white chocolate and cedar. Aromas of raspberry, blood orange and cocoa powder. A beautiful texture, nice concentrated flesh, fiery while retaining the freshness of the vintage.

About the Producer

After his first years in his hometown at Domaine de Brana in collaboration with Jean- Claude Berrouet (Château Petrus & Château Trotanoy), Jérôme spent 4 years at Château de Reignac then set off to discover the Barossa Valley in Australia. He then took over as technical Director at Château Le gay and Château la Violette in Pomerol gaining critical acclaim notably from Robert Parker, earning several scores over 96/100 and even a perfect 100 in 2010. He was headhunted by Vignobles K where he became technical director of all four properties in 2012.
