2016 Chateau Le Crock Saint-Estephe

2016 Chateau Le Crock Saint-Estephe

€69.95
 
Château Le Crock 2016 is a wine from the Saint Estephe appellation produced from a blend of four grape varieties, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, aged in 30% new oak. On the nose, the 2016 vintage of Château Le Crock exhibits an intense bouquet of black fruits, interspersed with woody notes. Moderately full-bodied, the mouthfeel of the Le Crock 2016 has relatively firm, granular tannins that are directly reminiscent of the 2010 vintage.

Description

The Château Le Crock vineyard is located in Saint-Estèphe, north of the left bank, between the Crus Classés Château Montrose and Château Cos d'Estournel. Belonging to the Cuvelier family, as well as Château Léoville Poyferré, it benefits from the same expertise as this Grand Cru Classé. Recognized in 1992 as a Cru Bourgeois, and elevated in 2003 to the rank of Cru Bourgeois Supérieur, Château Le Crock today confirms this level of quality, vintage after vintage. With a precise texture, this ample wine, with a long length of mouth, will satisfy the most demanding. Severe nose, supple, mellow mouth, fairly fresh, tight, good density, tight finish.
