This is already nicely salty and chalky with crushed stones. Medium-to full-bodied with medium, firm tannins and a medium, juicy finish., James Suckling
The 2021 Tour Saint Christophe is terrific. Naturally, the 2021 doesn't have the breadth of previous vintages. Instead, there is a sense of energy running through the 2021 that is compelling. Dark fruit, leather, gravel, incense and mocha all meld together nicely. Once again, Tour Saint Christophe is a star in the appellation for its quality and value. Tasted two times. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
The 2021 Tour Saint Christophe has turned out very well, delivering aromas of cherries and sweet berries mingled with hints of loamy soil and sweet new oak. Medium to full-bodied, pure and lively, it's elegantly muscular, with powdery tannins and a penetrating finish. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate
Vignobles K is on a roll, with a series of great vintages, and there is clear depth to the fruit, heavy on the limestone salinity, enjoyable pumice stone minerality, and a push and pull between tannins and acidity. The signature of the vintage comes through in a sharp finish as the acidity kicks in, emphasising the austerity, but this is a successful wine. Emmanuelle Fulchi D’Aligny arrived from Château Angélus as technical director in March 2022. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2021 Tour Saint Christophe reveals notes of blueberry compote, Morello cherries, and black raspberries with touches of cinnamon stick, cloves, and tilled soil. The medium-bodied palate offers mouth-coating black and blue fruits with a solid frame of rounded tannins and just enough freshness, finishing on a lingering, fragrant earthy note. Yields this year were 35 hl/ha and the blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent.
