The Tour Saint-Christophe estate in Saint Emilion boasts a beautiful terraced vineyard which looks upon Barde-Haut from the other side of the valley. Owned by Peter Kwok, one of the first Asian investors in Bordeaux in 1997 with the purchase of Haut-Brisson, Tour St.-Christophe is typically made of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc (although this vintage is 85/15). Kwok, who lives in Hong Kong but was born in Vietnam, owns 40 hectares of vines with Chateaux Tour Saint Christophe, Haut-Brisson and Tourans in St Emilion, plus Enclos Tourmaline and La Patache in Pomerol, and Enclos de Viaud in Lalande de Pomerol.
