Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel
"The 2018 le Crock has a deep garnet-purple color and vibrant, open-knit scents of crushed blackcurrants, redcurrant jelly and minted black berries with hints of mossy tree bark and pencil lead. The medium-bodied palate delivers a good amount of crunchy black fruit with a lightly chewy texture and a refreshing finish." Robert Parker, April 2021

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.
