Has anyone tried the 2010 Chateau St Ahon?
How about some of the more recent 2015 Bordeaux's

Chateau Haut Muarac….15
Chateau La Tonnell…..16 was on sale at TW.
The above are very nice and will be better with some age.

The 15 Capbern was at Costco in Aug and I grabbed a bunch at 19.99
The 16 is out now at Total Wine.

The 15 Cateau Baracan that was at Costco is really nice.
This was really cheap..

Is this a second label?:
Yes.

K&L Note: "Château Tour Saint Christophe is located in St-Christophe-des-Bardes at the border of St-Émilion. The vineyard is unique as it is partly planted on narrow terraces and tended in tight rows. The cascading landscape unfolds on the hillside of Cassevert overlooking the St-Laurent valley. The property is home to beautiful centuries-old dry stone terraces on a clay-limestone terroir. About 1.5 km of dry-stone terraces have been repaired by hand, a two-year process. The vineyard, with vines of an average age of 30 years, is orientated south-southwest and benefits from an ideal exposure to sun and perfect natural drainage conditions. Les Terrasses de Saint Christophe is the second label of Château Tour Saint Christophe."
