Château Saint Christoly, Médoc, Bordeaux | BKWine Pick

Since 2002 it is run by the two young sisters Cathy and Sandrine Héraud, sixth generation winemakers in the family who owns this 28 hectare property in northern Médoc. They are both full of enthusiasm but also very focused on what they want to achieve. Cathy makes the wine and Sandrine takes care of marketing and sales. The vineyard is primarily on gravelly and stony soil, just like at the Grand Cru Classé chateaux further south in the Médoc, says Cathy. The wine is classic and well structured with good fruit and balance and have been steadily improving since the sisters took charge. It can certainly pay off to venture all the way up to the northern Médoc where you can find this kind of wines for a mere 10€!
