The terroir is clay limestone.  Tour Saint Chrsitophe was classified as Grand Cru Classe in 2022. 

The wine

The grape composition of the Grand Vin varies with vintage conditions and grape ripeness but generally consists of 80% Merlot with the remainder Cabernet Franc. Fermentation in concrete tanks and barrels, is followed by extended ageing in new French oak barrels. Tour Saint Christophe was classified as Grand Cru Classe in 2022, and the wines are medium bodied with black fruit intensity a subtle earth and spice complexity. One to watch.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
