Clearly standing out in this line-up, an impressive, well-crafted wine with great tannic hold; a wine you would be thrilled to own. Cassis, bilberry, blackberry, hawthorn, black chocolate, slate. Great texture and balance, and full of St-Estèphe signature. Great stuff. (JA)
Under the same management as Château Léoville-Poyferré in Saint-Julien, this estate belongs to the Cuvelier family. With its structured Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is made to age. Big tannins and concentrated fruits are full and dense. *Cellar Selection* (RV)
The purity of the cabernet sauvignon is very evident here with currant and floral character. Full-bodied, firm and very polished with lovely, strong tannins. Muscular and polished. Give it three or four years to come together.
Well-built, featuring dark plum and blackberry coulis flavors that impart a dark yet racy feel, while light charcoal, chalk and wet pebble notes keep the finish grounded in terroir. An echo of tobacco rings throughout. (JM, Web-2019)
From a notable Cru Bourgeois estate in Saint-Estephe that’s managed by the team at Léoville Poyferré, the 2016 Château Le Crock is 46% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc that spent 18 months in 25% new French oak. 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.
