Very flattering Saint-Estèphe 

"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."  Decanter, July 2020

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

The Château Le Crock has 32 hectares of vineyards on an exceptional terroir composed of gravel, surface sand and clay in the basement. The benefits of these typicalities are the ability to keep heat, drain soils and provide a natural reserve of water. The vineyard is spread over three distinct settlement areas, enjoying exceptional richness and aromatic diversity. The proximity of the Gironde acts as a thermal regulator, thus avoiding excess temperature.

Around Sara Lecompte-Cuvelier, supported by culture chef Jonathan Servant, château oenologist Isabelle Davin and chai manager Yoann Lavigne, a team of 10 people supports the property throughout the year. From the vineyard to the bottle, combining tradition and modernity, all the know-how of this team concentrates to produce high quality wines in respect of the terroir and the identity of the Château.
