Hong Kong cru

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life -

Hong Kong en­tre­pre­neur Peter Kwok re­cently ac­quired Château Tourans, a grand cru win­ery in St Émil­ion. The pur­chase puts the ty­coon at the helm of more than 40 hectares of vine­yards in Bordeaux, with hold­ings in Pomerol and La­land­ede-pomerol as well as St Émil­ion. Château Tourans’ 12.6ha of vine­yards will be ab­sorbed by the neigh­bour­ing Kwok-owned Château Tour Saint-christophe. This will bring the to­tal area of the Tour Saint-christophe vine­yards to about 20ha. Har­vest­ing and vini­fy­ing of the Tourans ter­roir are al­ready un­der way for the 2015 vin­tage. Kwok also owns Château Haut-bris­son in St Émil­ion and the Pomerol châteaux La Pat­ache and Cor­naline.
