Château Le Crock 2016


Inside Bordeaux Jane Anson : 93 "Medium ruby in colour, with firm consistency from rim to core, still young and vibrant. As it opens; the black cherry, damson and cherry pit flvours give way to softer waves of tobacco anc crushed rocks. Still full of tannic power but the light is beginning to seep through." 20.10.2022
JamesSuckling.com James Suckling : 93 "Here Here’s a Saint.-Estèphe that’s both succulent and well structured. Great black fruit with savory complexity and beautifully integrated, toasty oak. The dryness and freshness at the finish pull you back to the glass for more. Drink or hold." 04.02.2019
JebDunnuck.com Jeb Dunnuck : 90 "From a notable Cru Bourgeois estate in Saint-Estephe that’s managed by the team at Léoville Poyferré. This rich, chewy, character-filled effort offers notes of jammy blackberries and meaty blackcurrants as well as notes of tobacco and cedar, medium to full body, ripe tannins, and outstanding length. Give it a few years and enjoy over the following 15-20 years." 04.03.2019
