    B27A 2006 Château Saint-Christophe, Saint-Emilion grand cru +

    Merlot, cabernet franc. Based in Saint-Christophe des Bardes (two miles east of Saint-Emilion), the Richard family cultivate twenty-three acres of clay and limestone neighbouring parcels belonging to l’Arrosée and Fombrauges.

    On the 2006 vintage: “Classic stuff, there’s a touch of mineral, iron-oxide bloodiness on the nose, a hint of leafiness and cedar, and then a lean core of bramble and blackcurrant fruit. On the palate it is very grown-up claret, with a tensioning grip of tannin and powerful acidity, the spices and the sinewy black fruit coming through on the mid-palate. The wine finishes on savoury fruit and spice, in delicious Bordeaux style.” Tom Cannavan, wine-pages.com (June 2014)
