Château Saint-Christophe is an independent winery in the commune of Saint-Christophe-desBardes, just two miles east of historic Saint-Emilion. Through successive generations of the Richard-Biès family, artisan winemakers have passed on their experience of caring for their 9 ha vineyard, rooted for half century in a terroir rich in clay and limestone. Full-bodied and creamy with lots of spice and walnut character. Lovely softness and purity. Black fruit at the end. Very fine tannins. Well-integrated.
95-96, James Suckling
With a beautiful ruby red colour, it presents aromas of ripe fruit against a subtle background of vanilla. On the palate it is harmoniously warm, round and fruity (fig and blackberry), the whole supported by smooth tannins. It is best served at 16°-18°C and can be enjoyed on its own or with sauced meat dishes.
