Château La Croix St-Estèphe

Château La Croix St-Estèphe 2021

Following three particularly hot vintages, Nature reminded us in 2021 that it was indeed she who set the tone, showing more of an oceanic side. Throughout the year, our teams had to be patient and courageous in the face of unpredictableweather conditions.

Thankfully, relief was on the way with dry, sunny conditions at the end of August, encouraging ripeness and leading to the most gratifying of rewards on September 27th, the first day of the harvest!
Château Le Crock 2021 reveals a remarkable aromatic palette of red fruits with wild strawberries. Its timeless style, though less exuberant, recaptures the freshness and charm of the Saint-Estèphe of yesteryear.
