2018 Château Le Crock  (St. Estèphe) 92

Earthy black cherries, clay, smoke and licorice sensations for the aromatic character. On the palate the wine is round, soft, sweet and juicy. The fruit is easy to like, due to its perfect ripeness. In the finish, spice, licorice and blackberry kick in and stay there. Give this just a year or two and enjoy it over the next 12-15 years. The wine was produced from 45% Merlot, 40.% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Value seekers should be all over this one. 91-93 Pts

2011 Château Le Crock  (St. Estèphe) 89

Cherry and chocolate mint on the nose, soft, open and approachable, there is good freshness to the sweet, cocoa dusted, almost bright, red cherry finish.

A blend of 46% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon and a whopping 17% Petit Verdot set a record for the estate for the inclusion of Petit Verdot. On average, the blend contains closer to 5%. The wine reached 13.5% alcohol. This is due to the September hail storm that slammed into Le Crock damaging a large portion of the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot found in the vineyard. Deep in color with a spicy, earth and red berry-dominated nose, the wine is tannic, fresh, ripe and strong, ending with sweet, round cassis. 89-90 Pts

2009 Château Le Crock  (St. Estèphe) 90

Medium-bodied, soft, polished, earthy, and fully mature, the wine serves up its round, soft, spicy red berries, tobacco, thyme and coffee notes with ease. This is not a long-distance runner, so if you have been waiting, you should be enjoying this now and over the next 5 years or so.

Le Crock is another great 2009 selling for a fair price. Located not far from Cos d’Estournel, the wine has a nose filled with aromas of berries, rocks, and spice. Round in texture, the wine finishes with dark cherry and earth flavors. This is one of the better values of the vintage.

2005 Château Le Crock  (St. Estèphe) 89

Spicy, fresh, tannic, firm and structured, with fresh black and red fruits, this is still young and should be better with another year or two in the bottle which should help it soften and come together.
