Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes – 16.5

Tasted blind. Some roundness and subtlety. Very superior and luscious. Inky finish but real drive and character. GV   [23/01/2020]

Vinous – 89

The 2016 Le Crock has a crisp, pure, focused bouquet replete with brambly red fruit, orange zest and light spicy notes; the aromatics here convey plenty of energy. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, quite rounded tannins for a Saint Estèphe. One of the more forward examples tasted from the appellation, yet well balanced. A smooth Szechuan pepper note lingers on the aftertaste. [Neal Martin, 24/01/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2021-2032

Robert Parker – 88

The 2016 Le Crock is a blend of 46% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. It has an intense bouquet, showing quite noticeable new oak compared to some of its peers although there is a modest 30%. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannin. This feels grainy in texture, one of the Left Bank wines that could be a doppelgänger for 2010, with a grippy, slightly masculine finish. Hopefully, it will develop more flesh during its élevage.

Anticipated maturity: 2021-2036
