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

Built in Saint-Estèphe by the Merman family at the beginning of the 19th century, the building is distinguished by its unique architecture in the Médoc, referenced to the regional heritage. Negotiating wines in Lille since 1804, the Cuvelier family, set foot in the Bordeaux vineyard by acquiring the Château Le Crock in 1903. It later bought the Châteaux Léoville Poyferré (2nd Grand Cru Classé) and Moulin Riche in Saint-Julien in 1920. In 1947 Max Cuvelier moved to Bordeaux and created a second trading house: H. Cuvelier & Fils. His eldest son, Didier, was responsible for the day-to-day management of family property in 1979. For 40 years, he presided over the destinies of the fields, providing the same care and precision research in the production of wines in Saint-Julien as in Saint-Estèphe.
