2010 Le Crock (St-Estephe)

Media Reviews

Robert Parker

This vineyard, owned by Didier Cuvelier, the proprietor of Leoville-Poyferre, is finally coming to life. A blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot, the 2010 achieved 14% natural alcohol. It exhibits a dense purple color followed by notes of roasted herbs, licorice, fruitcake and black currants. Medium to full-bodied and rich with moderate tannins as well as the distinctive earthy character that often comes from St.-Estephe, this broad, savory effort should drink well for 15+ years. 90-92 points
